AppLock 2 (Smart App Protect) Review: A Vigilant Guard

When it comes to the security of your data, then you can’t solely rely on built-in security features on Android devices. Entrusting a third-party app with this responsibility is definitely a smarter option. This is where AppLock 2 (also known as Smart App Protect and Smart AppLock) comes in, as it not only protects your data, but also exposes intruders by taking their photo the moment they enter the wrong password. However, that is certainly not all there is to this app. Let’s take a closer look at what Smart App Protect Android has to offer and then judge if it’s really worth an install.

Lock SMS and Contacts

AppLock 2 does a really neat job of protecting your communications and contacts from snoops by blocking access to SMS and Contacts.

Lock Calls

This app locker also locks incoming calls so that snoops cannot attend or make calls on your phone. Activating this feature will require a password to be entered every time you receive a call. This feature is particularly useful for parents who want to make sure their kids do not receive their calls.

Lock Gallery

Most of us keep our private photos and videos on our phones, which is not at all safe as anyone with wrong intentions can sneak into the gallery. This is why it’s best to lock these apps. AppLock 2 makes sure your photos and videos are safe. It locks gallery in order to avoid unauthorized access. It goes even one step further with its GalleryVault, which allows you to encrypt your images and videos for extra protection.

Multiple Lock Options

It offers multiple locks including pattern, PIN, and password, giving you the freedom to choose how you want to protect your privacy. If you are using a Samsung device with fingerprint scanner, then you can also use the fingerprint unlocking option to access locked apps.

Uninstallation Prevention

If your kid is tech savvy, then chances are they may uninstall the app locker or find a way to stop it. This is why AppLock 2 allows you to set a password to prevent unauthorized uninstallation or deactivation of app. It also sends break-in alerts and takes photo of anyone who enters the wrong password to help you catch the snoop.

User-Friendly Interface

AppLock 2 has a very clean and easy-to-use interface, with all the options and controls present upfront. You simply have to tap the app to block/unblock it. There’s absolutely no complexity involved in the installation process either, this making it accessible to even those who aren’t too familiar with Android apps.

Compatibility                  

AppLock 2 supports Android 3.0 and above.

Lock Play Store

This free app locker even lets you lock Google Play Store, thus preventing an unauthorized person from installing anything on your device.

Verdict

AppLock 2 is a reliable app locker with several advanced features, making it a good option for all those looking to snoop-proof and child-proof their Android device. The app does have a tendency to crash every now and then, but it’s not frequent enough to ruin the overall experience.
