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.

  • LEO Privacy is great I had to download it because it said a veris I was scared but LEO Privacy help it and you can also lock apps in case you don't want your bother or sister going I'm your game like I have a game called poke mini and I let no one play it

  • Thanks for the explanation. My faith is restored.

  • 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.

    • 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.

  • Just instaled it, This Applock has a very nice feature like Geo Lock and time lock,the UI's are very clean and so simple, this makes everyone can easily understand it, very nice applock.

  • Omeli Apr 3, 2016 Link to comment

    Wow, wow the app is very light
    And is very simple to use, but it also gives me a High-tech vibe and it functions well☺☺😊

  • Nerver had a security app before, but this is gratis and verden usefull :)

  • Nice and easy with good security features. Makes it convenient to use.

  • Norm Apr 1, 2016 Link to comment

    Nice and easy. Makes it convenient to use.

  • Nice, clean small app with a short learning curve. Great for parental control & shared devices.

  • Nice, smooth UI with great animations. Just the right amount of form and function. Works flawlessly as intended.

  • Joe Apr 1, 2016 Link to comment

    the UI looks cool,better security and Geo lock too,ive tried various lock app i feel comfortable with avira applock+,since there is no inbuilt lock in my oneplus 2.the things i like is the app is low file size and no Ads in it too.i'm looking forward wiith some more UI changes like theme etc.

    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

  • 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.

  • 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!

  • 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.

    • 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.

  • 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

  • It's easy to use & convenient app, simple & powerful app that keeps my apps safe & secure from unauthorized access, AppLock+ is the best app.

  • At first.. for that kinda mediocre. I partially doubt this app performance. I install it and good to say that its outrun my own expectations. Kudos to the devs who made this.. the best part its just all major functions of this app are in small package. Very Lightweight and Superb app.

  • i install lots of similar apps but Avira AppLock+ is simple, user friendly, Lightweight.
    take few mb's of memory, easy for use, but trail version just 14 day...that's sad. if they add material design UI, then it will more attractive. The geolock will be my favourite feature. Hope to see some useful features like fingerprint sensor to unlock apps...!!

  • Successfully installed the application, i have to say AppLock+ is one of the most innovative, well made and useful applications for security i've ever experienced

  • Martin Mar 30, 2016 Link to comment

    Just installed. It looks quite nice, simple and beautiful. The geolock mode is the masterpiece which is very useful. What i can say more, just have to test it the next days

  • Oran Mar 30, 2016 Link to comment

    Simple to set up and works exactly as expected! Wish the app would have come out earlier :)

  • So far, I like this app alot! It has many beneficial options that are very easy to use understand. Using this on my S3, is effortless! This phone has been rooted since day 1 (now running Kitkat 4.4), has over 230 "PAID" apps on it ;), still runs on the stock battery which still gives me a FULL days operating power, and added 64 Gb card still runs like a "Champ"! Thank you Samsung! So, as you can see, I'm A HUGE Android fan and always will be! So thank you ANDROIDPIT in advance for my winning this upgraded mobile powerhouse! Be well assured that I will put it thru many vigorous hours of testing and personal use! Rest assured that I will respond with a relevant & concise review after I'm rewarded....

  • app lock is truly amazing , no trouble sitting it up. I can allow someone to use my phone and not worry about them going through it.

    The ui is simple yet beautiful.

  • installed, had to factory reset, thought was applock, WRONG after reinstall, found out this is the BEST app YET

  • Need a few minutes to understand how to use, but it was soon possible to understand the main functions, the translation into Portuguese is perfect!

  • Seems a simple app to get up and running. Price seems good too. I would definitely consider this app for my children (especially when they get their own smart phones).

    I like the option for setting times and days when lock is active.

    I really couldn't find a purpose for this app in my life. Everyone has their own device in my family, I'm self employed, my phone is rooted so no payment apps work. Maybe for someone else its useful

  • Too complicated to use and it doesn't have the option to use the fingerprint sensor to unlock

  • I was searching good apllication lockers. But the time I saw Avira Applock I asked myself why didn't I just install this easy to use application with a nice background so I downloaded it and it worked on all all of my applications. I even tryed it on my older phones and it worked with no problem. So I advise you to download Avira Applock for your security.

    I love the design and easy to use. The geolock will be my favourite feature. I used some similar app in the past, but it's is the most user-friendly.

  • pretty cool. mega easy to use. simple ui, very straight forward. a dark theme would be cool, but not bad nonetheless.

  • I never trusted any applock apps before than The domobile Applock, it is the first time i am using this app. And Honestly I uninstalled the domobile Applock. I like the Geo lock concept very well! Hope to see some great things in future! Thanks.
