The app supports two password modes: Pattern Lock and Classic Lock (Number lock).
Apart from just locking apps, you can also use this app to hide your photo and videos. The app lets you hide photos, videos individually or even by making folders.
The other cool feature of the app is Re-lock, which means that you can set a time interval after which app will be locked again, even if you have opened the app after drawing the pattern.
