Cell phone has been known as a private device and must be only exposed to the owner however, sometimes getting exposed to others and far from the owner makes us concerned about the personal information and data saved and stored on.

Thus, the manufacturers of smartphones and feature phones intended to remove this worry and create more security for the phones by adding this capability of locking the system.

Smartphones releasing in the universal market continues concerning about this issue since installing and running various applications is accompanied with using smartphone.

Hereby, most apps can be used with the possibility of storing personal information, videos, images and so on which may be in other people’s availability except for the owner.

Another option is “Auto-lock”. It is possible to choose one of the times presented in the menu and the app will get locked thereafter.

On the bottom of the screen there is a possibility about capturing screenshot which is inactive by default when you lock the app. If you want to take screenshot while the app lock is active, you need to tap the switch.
