How to Lock Android Apps

Today I'm gonna share to you a guide how to lock specific applications in your Android device. We all know that there are plenty of applications available in Android Market to lock some of your apps but a lot of them are paid or having advertisments. Luckily, I found a free app on Android Market called APP Lock you can lock installed applications using password or pattern. Just follow the steps below to learn how to use it.

Step 1: Go to Android Market and search for APP Lock.

Step 2: After you installed the APP Lock you'll be asked for the unlock password. This will be the                password you'll use to all your locked apps.

Step 3: After Step 2 fill the required fields, you may add hint - this is optional. Press save                             and your done.

Step 4: Just select the app you want to lock by swiping the icons.

Step 5: If you prefer using pattern to unlock than using password just select the settings and chose Pattern Lock.

Step 6: Draw the desired unlock pattern. 

I hope that this blog post helps you!
