  1. Very embarrassing… My boy friend find out my private images… applock a great human creation. Like LEO Privacy much better..

  2. I can lock up my Facebook, WhatsApp, Clash of Clans, Messenger, Gallery and other important apps which may leak your privacy with LEO Privacy (it is really amazing) . 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~
