What is AppLock+?

AppLock+ gives you a secure way to lock your files. Using a four-to-eight-digit PIN code, you stop others from using the apps that you wish to keep safe.

What are the key features of AppLock+?

This video offers a brief introduction to AppLock+ and its main features.

Privacy Protection - Share on your own terms with Pass Lock

When lending your phone to colleagues, or showing pictures to friends, you can’t always control where they look next. But with AppLock+, you can restrict what they see. Simply lock individual apps or group them together and grant access, for example, to your notes but not your personal communications, social media accounts or browsing history.

Unlimited remote device management

Remotely lock and unlock apps on your managed phones (as many as you like!) from Avira Online Essentials – our online dashboard. Our intuitive user interface displays an overview of all active apps per device and their lock status, which can be changed with one click. This feature is ideal for both concerned parents and device administrators.

Parental Controls - Smart parental controls with a soft touch

AppLock+ helps you set healthy limits on your kids’ smartphone usage without being intrusive. Easily restrict purchases, new downloads, system setting changes and app uninstallations. With the premium version, you can even block games while your kids are at school, or set time spans when it’s OK for them to access Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.

What are the premium features of AppLock+?

ScheduleLock for €1.49

Automatically lock apps at a given time, for instance, on workdays between 9 AM and 6 PM. Ideal for keeping your kids off Facebook Messenger while in class or keeping Pinterest from distracting you at work. Available as an in-app purchase.

GeoLock for €1.49

Automatically lock apps at a given location. Just enter the address on the map and determine a radius of 1-10 km around it to establish the 'safe zone'. Within it, your selected apps will be locked. Available as an in-app purchase.

Our free app locker lets you easily protect your privacy by requiring a PIN code to access confidential apps of your choosing, such as WhatsApp, Skype or Facebook. Avira AppLock+ is the best way to share your Android without giving access to your calls, messages or financials.

    Thanks for the explanation. My faith is restored.

  • Bill McGovern Apr 5, 2016 Link to comment

    I'm sure I must have understood your winner announcement. You really didn't allow a member of AndroidPIT to enter and win your giveaway, right? If so, I gotta agree with Sean S. Tell me I misunderstood.

    • Cory Schmidt Apr 5, 2016 Link to comment

      No, a member of AndroidPIT did not enter or win. The picture is of the Heads of Content for their respective countries. From left to right is Germany, USA, France and Italy. The person who won the contest is from France so the Head of Content from France is happy that someone from his country won the contest, which is why he is smiling.

    this 'advertorial' kinda got under my skin. not cool that aPIT ran an ad that's a blatant scam like this.

    Thank You for the opportunity

    Downloaded what I considered an unnecessary app to win the phone. Wrong again! Good security gatekeeper and easy to set up/use. Gonna keep it

  • Abdelkarim Mar 31, 2016 Link to comment

    Cette application est très bonne et devient une concurrent de App LOCK. j'ai apprécié les contenus.
    espérons qu'elle aura des améliorations sur les cartes cars sommes dans les zones qui n'intéressent pas les développeurs.

  • Joel Roxx Mar 31, 2016 Link to comment

    The app is by far, tops my list of App Lockers followed by Hexlock! It has a smooth feeling with a wonderful Interface. The functions work as they are said to be and so far amazing! Would love it, if it had Tablet support too! Anyway, I would using this on my phone. Nice going Avira!

  • Chantale Lavoie Mar 31, 2016 Link to comment

    Looking forward to using Applock+. My phone has the guest option that enables my son to use my phone accessing only what I want but it is so glitchy. This will be perfect! I would LOVE 💘 to win Samsung's S6 Edge. Samsung phones are by far my favorite and I use it to its full potentential.

    • Jalaleen Mar 31, 2016 Link to comment

      Sorry you can't win the phone. You put a ' and an s next to Samsung's name in the 'Samsung S6 Edge'. You're disqualified. Sorry. Better luck next time, honey. Now delete this comment and off with you. Buh-bye.

  • Jalaleen Mar 31, 2016 Link to comment

    If you give a wrong email address, you cannot switch to your current/correct email address. Sure it is good to lock your applications and be able to secure them using a PIN/Password but it will take some time knowing the application.
    If you login with Facebook, it doesn't really do much. It still stays on the Sign In page and asks you to provide a username and a password.
    Edit: Just clicked on the 'Login with Facebook' again and it then worked. Seems like it has to do the process twice to make it run.

    Edit: The Shit part is that this application is not free. It should be free with basic functionality and should put hands in our pockets with Premium edition.

    P.S. I do want a Samsung S6 Edge.
    P.P.S. If I win, people's faith will be restored in humanity and these lucky draws. They will know of the unbiasedness of this draw.
    P.P.P.S. I think there is an even easier way to win a Samsung S6 Edge and that is if you announce "Login to Androidpit and win a Samsung S6 Edge" :D
