App Review: Lockdown Pro Keeps All of Your Apps From Prying Eyes
APP REVIEW

We’ve all been there: you hand over your phone so a friend can make a call, and the next thing you know he’s flipping through your swimsuit photos. Not cool. Now imagine an app that locks only specific sections, leaving the rest of your phone open.

 

XDA developer “Appmobile” imagined it, and then made it real. His app, Lockdown Pro, is a simple and elegant solution for keeping your private stuff private, while having the rest of your phone available to you and others.

The menu is super simple. You have a list of all your apps and a slider to the side of each one - Locked or Unlocked. Choose which apps you want to keep private, set your lock mechanism and you’re all set.

 

The lock mechanisms are basically what you’d expect -- you’ve got your pattern lock, your classic phrase password or a calculator-type number lock. Pick your favourite and set the phrase -- nothing groundbreaking here. That’s reserved for the Geolocation locking.

 

Arguably Lockdown Pro’s coolest feature, the Geolocation locking enables you to set where your apps lock or unlock. For instance, let’s say John from HR keeps going through your messages and you can’t be bothered locking them every day. Just set the Messages app to lock itself when connected to the company WiFi, and Lockdown Pro handles the rest.

 

And last but not least, another spiffy feature Lockdown Pro has is the Fake Cover. Instead of locking the app outright, it fakes a crash when the app is opened. The Nosy Nancy then thinks the app malfunctioned, and leaves it alone -- only you know that a long press opens up the passcode menu.

Find Lockdown Pro on the Play Store, and don’t let the name fool you -- the in-app Pro features are paid, while the app itself is free.
