Nobody likes it when people just pick up your phone and go through all of your messages and call history. And some of these obnoxious people even ask you about those messages after violating all of your privacy. You cannot but stare at them in surprise and disgust – how can people behave like this? Well, you cannot change people, but you can lock down your apps with a password or pattern, so that nobody but you can use those apps after supplying the correct passwords, PIN code or pattern. The ES App Locker is such an app for Android users that can help you lock your apps with a pattern lock.
The ES App Locker is created by the same people who developed the popular ES File Explorer app for Android and as such it can be trusted to work and secure your apps. The app shows up a list of all the installed apps in your Android device when you launch it for the first time. You can select one or more apps to lock up as you please and then tap on the Lock button. You will have to draw a pattern that will be used to lock the apps.
Now when you try to launch the locked apps, you will be shown the screen to draw the lock patten. Without drawing the correct pattern, you will not be allowed to use the selected app. You have to draw this pattern every single time you want to use the locked apps. In the settings, you can choose to change the lock pattern, disable the lock, re-lock all open apps when the screen is turned off and hide the pattern drawing trajectory to prevent anyone noticing your pattern.
The ES App Locker app for Android can be very useful if you do not want some of the nosy people who really enjoy snooping through your messages and call history. Using this app you can lock down the Messaging, Dialer and the email apps to keep them as private as possible.
