Using This Android App Locker to Set Different Lock for Different Apps:
When you launch this app locker for the first time, the app asks you to set up a PIN. After setting the PIN, you can choose to set a password reset option. On completion of this step, you can start using the app.
The interface is displayed in the screenshot below. You can see that it has a list of all apps on your device. The option to start/stop the app lock is at top right corner. For choosing apps tobe locked, you can see that there are two icons in front of each app: Fake Message and Lock. The Fake Message is for displaying a fake app crash message whenever anyone tries to open the app selected under it while the Lock is for asking for the PIN to unlock the app. It is the same PIN which you will set during the first launch of the app.
The other advanced options which I explained in beginning of the article can be accessed using the three bar icon at top left corner. Here you will see different options but I will explain only those which are available for use in the free version.
These options are: Individual Locks, Toggle Protection, Remote Protection, Third Eye, Themes, and Settings.
This is the option which lets you set individual locks for individual apps. Tap on plus icon at top right corner to get option Lock Type. From here, choose the lock type which you want to use. You can choose from 7 lock types: Password, Pattern, Gesture, Time PIN, Tap, Rhythm, and Calculator.
After choosing the method, go back to previous screen and choose Add More Applications. Select the app(s) you want to add for that selected lock style. Now, save the settings by giving it name to save the lock. This way, you can set individual locks for individual apps.
This option lets you PIN protect enabling of WiFi, Bluetooth, and Mobile Data of your device. The PIN required to enable any of the three tools is the one set by you during the first launch of the app.
It lets you enable/disable remote protection. If enabled, you can lock/unlock apps on your Android device by sending a keyword via text from any other phone. You can set the keyword as per your preference, but it has to be different for locking and unlocking apps. You can also choose whether the selected keyword will lock/unlock all the apps or only the ones unlocked/locked by you.
If enabled, this feature captures the photo of the person trying to unlock your phone. The app clicks photo using the front and back cam of your phone after wrong password attempts. You can specify the number of wrong attempts as per your choice. If your phone don’t have front cam, then it clicks photo of the background via rear camera.
Choose from 4 cool themes to personalize the app user experience. Available 4 themes are: iOS 8, iOS 7, Windows Phone, and Android L. You have to download these themes separately which are available for free.
