To help you stay safe, we've prepared a tutorial on how to put passwords on apps easily and without fuss. Check out!

1. Download AppLock on your cell phone;

2. Open the app and choose the drawing pattern you want to use to open the applications. Repeat the process;

4. Select applications who wants to protect;

5. grant permissions for AppLock to access applications in use and enable the floating window option;
