Or you hand your phone to a child so they can play a game but they decide to somehow change your unlock password. Never again with AppLock. This free app can lock SMS, Contacts, Gmail, Facebook, Gallery, Market, Settings, Calls and basically any app you choose, safeguarding your data and your phone.
