App Lock and Gallery Vault places an effective lock on your phone that blocks others from using your apps or viewing your photos, even if they have access to your phone.

While there are loads of other similar apps on the market, App Lock and Gallery Vault is one of the only ones that lets you set up a fake password. When you give this password to someone and he or she logs into your phone, the app will limit what they can see and what they can do with your phone. It will keep itself hidden on your phone to keep others from realizing you have this program running.

Thanks to popular apps like Snap Chat, you no longer need to worry about people passing around embarrassing photos of you. Those apps let you take and share photos but will delete those photos after a set period of time. If you have private photos that you do not want to share, you can use this app to keep those images safe. It can lock down your entire gallery and keep unauthorized users from viewing those photographs. The app works great when it comes to apps that you want to keep hidden too.

App Lock and Gallery Vault gives you three ways in which to set up your phone. You can set up a basic password that contains a combination of letters, numbers and even symbols. Its pin code option lets you choose a numeric code of four digits or more that will unlock your phone when entered correctly. The app also has a pattern lock option. This lets you draw a pattern on the screen of your phone that you set up as your password. Unless you or someone else enters that same exact pattern, the app will keep your phone locked.

The main reason so many people use this app is because they want to keep their phones safe from prying eyes. No one who uses your phone, including family members or friends, can view or use your apps. It also keeps your private information and photos safe from hackers and thieves who might steal your phone. Though it cannot lock down all apps, it will work with most of those on your device. App Lock and Gallery Vault lets you limit what people can do with or see on your phone while still letting them use it.
