AppLock+ your Android world

Avira has just launched AppLock+, the app that puts you in direct control of what, where, and when each app is used on your Android  – even when the device is off at school and out of arms reach.

AppLock+ lets you restrict app activity by your choice of PIN password, time of day, or even the device location. In addition, you don’t even need to have your device in hand as AppLock+ allows you to remotely manage devices with the Avira Online Essentials dashboard.

”AppLock+ answers the essential problem faced by parents around the globe: How we  keep  children from playing with smartphones or accessing social media accounts during school hours, but still be accessible,” said Andrei Petrus, product manager at  Avira.

And it’s not just for parents, it’s also for the privacy conscious. “AppLock+ lets device owners decide what they want to share or not – solving Android’s weakness of a single default device lock,” points out Petrus.

AppLock+ gives users three big benefits:

  1. Parental Control – Smart controls with a soft touch

AppLock+ lets parents to set limits on their kids’ smartphone usage without being intrusive. Game and social apps can be blocked by time limits or blocked at the school door with Geo Lock restrictions.

  1. Privacy Protection – Share it on your own terms

With AppLock+ you decide how much someone with your device can access your apps and private data. Apps can be locked by PIN and managed individually or in groups.

  1. Remote management – Oversee device activities from anywhere

Applock+ includes Avira Online Essentials – the online dashboard in our consumer and business antivirus security products – to let device owners remotely manage app use.

AppLock+ is free for downloading at the Google Play Store and the Avira website. The Geo Lock and other features are available only with the premium product.

It’s your device, it’s your choice with AppLock+.
