HexLock App Lock Security Protection: How to use it!
Our mobile phones have become the standard place where we store a lot of confidential, personal and private data. Many of our outstanding social media accounts are also synced in with our devices. And there are situations when we have to share our phone with others. So to prevent others from accessing your valuable data, there are apps available on Google PlayStore. Hexlock is one such app that locks your other essential apps from a third person. It is a lightweight app that takes around 6 MB of your mobile phone device. But what makes Hexlock different from other such security lock apps is that you can customize which all applications you want to secure. You can give profile labels such as ‘Work’, ‘Home’ etc. so that you can prevent your co-workers or kids from handling various apps in your phone. Parental mode won’t let your kids make in-app purchases and stop them from using other sensitive applications. Apart from apps such as Facebook, WhatsApp, and other social media applications, you can also lock your Settings and Controls. Media Vault prevents photos and gallery from being accessed by random people. And you can also set Automatic lock which locks certain apps according to the profile you have created when you connect to a known Wi-Fi network.
How to Use Hexlock Android App?
- Install Hexlock from Google Play Store.
- Start by setting a pattern and pin, whichever you find comfortable.
- Select the apps that you want to put under the lock.
- You can also choose the media vault and restrict your Gallery.
- Categorize the apps under different labels such as Work, Parental, etc.
- Select the WiFi networks so that the app lock profiles automatically change when you change the WiFi network.
- Also, for selected Samsung smartphones, there is a facility to set fingerprint locks. This will make the unlocking fast as you don’t have to spend time on drawing the pattern or pin. And undoubtedly, the security is higher as nobody can recreate such a biometric identification parameter.
The app works on Android 4.0.3 and up. There have been over 5,000,000 installs and majority of the users reviews recommend Hexlock. Using the unique profiles that you can create, you can also adjust the apps and locks with great flexibility. What prevents many of the users from installing lock security applications is the fact that they either close all the applications and features or skip some of it. It is annoying when you have to enter a pattern to open every app on your phone, even the not-so-important ones. But using Hexlock, only those which you wish to lock can be set up so that patterns do not appear for each and every app. And to guarantee security, almost all the apps, gallery and settings can be locked, and none of those are left out.
This Hexlock app is just awesome. I am using it currently in my new xperia phone. This lock appis just wow and it’s security level is really high as you have described.
I would like to say here that everyone must see using this app.
Thank you 🙂

Comparing with other android security app, Hexlock is good and it is easy to hide the specific files or snap shots in any android smart phones. And highlight is it has biometric features for the access.
I really like LEO Privacys. Its really a good and nice app lock because even you clear the apps data and cache in apps manager, its still working fine. I mean, the security code is not gone. Its really prevent unauthorize use of your phone apps. Good job.
Hi, Suprabhat your article is great. But I have a question if I will forget my pattern then how can I recover my password without uninstalling the app?
