Like all other lock apps, you pick a passcode and choose the apps you want to lock but that is where its similarities to other apps end. Its uniqueness and usefulness lies in the fact that unauthorized users won’t even know that the app is locked and requires a passcode. When enabled, the fake cover feature creates a pop up screen imitating an app crash message every time someone tries to open the locked app. The person taps the ok button and goes to the home screen, thinking that that app isn’t working. When you want to access the locked apps, you simply tap and hold the ok button on the app crash screen till the passcode enter screen appears. You enter your code and enjoy using the app in complete privacy.
But sometimes, when you’re in the comfort of your home or in any other place you don’t need to password protect those apps, this system can get tiresome and the developers have come up with a clever work around. You simply set up locations and/or Wi-Fi addresses that when recognized by the system, will command it to either enable the lock or disable it (depending on your preference). For E.g – suppose you have some private apps on your phone that you do not want anyone at work to see, you can set the app to lock itself when you reach your office’s location and unlock when you connect to your Wi-Fi at home.
The app also includes pattern lock and other methods of unlocking. Plus there are some really cool themes for the lock screen available in the play store. The best part of this app is that it is free.
