Android APP Lock By-Pass

I have been using the Innovation of Year device known Samsung Galaxy Note GT-N7000, and in order to prevent my Image gallery from my notorious friend, who has bad habit to dig into my personal pictures. I installed the App Locker from Google Play.

The application gives you the facility to lock all or selected application on your device with password or pattern. So I locked the Gallery using same.

Gallery is Locked by App Lock

Then whenever I click on Gallery the prompt of App Locker arises asking for password. Then you enter the password and you’re in the Gallery.

But on my same notorious friend B’day I was clicking the pictures, after taking several pictures I clicked the small square on the left bottom corner in the camera app which takes me to the gallery and I was able to view them, without App Locker asking for password.

And Voila…I by-passed the App Locker in this scenario.

I have tested this By-pass against following App Locker applications in Google Play and it works for all.

1] App Lock – App Protector By Creative Core
2] Smart App Protector By Sputnik
3] Fast App lock By George Android
4] APP Lock By DoMobile Lab

Note: Using the above by-pass the un-wanted recipient can only view the images in Gallery default folder and not of other folders created inside the Gallery.

    It looks like an amazing app. I will have a try. And I want to share another APPLOCK, it is LEO Privacy. I gave 3 cellphones (smartphone) to my employees and they were getting distracted with the apps and making unnecessary purchases. Until I downloaded this and LEO Privacy works perfect! Now they can concentrate on working and no more extra fees on the bill!

    I can lock up my Facebook, WhatsApp, Clash of Clans, Messenger, Gallery and other important apps which may leak your privacy with LEO Privacy. And I can also customize my lock mode which allows me to lock different apps under different circumstances. applock is also a good choice, but I think it isn’t smart enough, you can have a try: ~(share an beautiful pit from facebook)

    It doesn’t save your pictures.Nice app but be warned that this doesn’t save your pictures anywhere.. I’ve had to re save my pictures probably 5 times… Does anyone can recommend a applock that can hide private contacts? My boyfriend always snoops my phone!!! Very embarrassing… applock is a great human creation. Among all of applock I had used, prefer LEO Privacy much better… If you have any other applocks to recommend, please leave message and give some comments!
