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.
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.
