Hexlock: In depth
HEXLOCK is an android app developed by top app developer liquidum.com. It tackles privacy issues that most of us encounter everyday. Set passcode and pattern lock screen with the apps you want to secure without locking the whole device. Offering up to six unique profiles, switching between work, home, parental and party profile has never been so easy. With just a touch, you can activate lock profiles when you get connected to a known wifi network. Set HEXLOCK to lock WORK profile when you arrive home. And all your work-related apps will be safe. So don’t panic when your toddler grabs your device and launch the Angry birds or talks with Talking Tom.
Have a nosy friend or an annoying workmate? Not a problem anymore! HEXLOCK’s autolock feature comes to your rescue.
Have all your “grizzly” selfies or photos of you making faces, candid family moments, and apps you share privately tucked in your HOME profile. Be confident when you pass your phone to a co-worker. They can only see what you allow them. After all, HEXLOCK is here to guard your device.
Allowing users to set parental control on which apps and games our curious kids can access, this app could literally mean “heaven sent” for parents who wants to share their device without worrying. Admit it, we have games, apps and even pictures not suitable for young audiences. Sounds like the television program reminder but it’s true. With HEXLOCK parental profile you can be at ease while your kids amuse themselves with your device plus no more accidental in-app purchases.
There was once an issue about a toddler who unknowingly downloaded paid games and thereby putting the parents under a huge amount of debt. That could be prevented with HEXLOCK. So moms and dads out there, this app is definitely a must-have!
– pattern lock could be made invisible.
– easy to switch between apps with Hexlock’s re-lock delay feature.
– choose either to remove ads or no.
– in-app search is allowed
– control settings and your own wifi networks
– Forgotten password? Not a big deal anymore. Hexlock can retrieve the password even with locked settings.
– upgraded version offers less unwelcome notifications
What’s not so good:
I wish Hexlock have had face or voice recognition or thumbprint as an access and security means aside from pin and pattern lock. As for the notifications and ads, sometimes it is just annoying when it pops-up. Although notifications are intended to be a reminder, some finds it intruding and unnecessary. Hexlock should give the users an option whether to be notified or not. That will give them a much better control.
An ad-free and controllable notification Hexlock seems right for me.
Apps like Hexlock is not at all new in Android world. In fact, there’s a bunch of it swarming the tech world but Hexlock design is superb. Aside from being user-friendly, it also doesn’t slow down your phone. For an app to work hassle-free, with easy navigation, and soft transition, Hexlock won’t make you regret the whole experience.
