When it comes to Android Protection, app locking is one of the most important security features that you can have and the reason is that your apps contain important information or some private information. For instance your friend takes your phone and gets into your text messages this is one of the things that you don’t want to happen, and there is no built-in feature other than your password.
Now your password can fail because there are somethings that are wrong if someone is smart and a fast thinker they can track you hitting keys for instance if your password is 123 they can watch when you put it in, and even without seeing the numbers they can get in by remembering the location of the keys.
