Lock Applications To Run On Android Phone, Tablet With Password

Children are definitely the cutest beings in this world but sometimes they are the cause of many problems. Talking about cellphones your child must always be curious about trying his or her hands on your gadget but you avoid them because you are worried about losing any important information stored on your device and which your child might wipe off by mistake.

Now you don’t have to worry anymore and your child can also fulfill his or her wish. Android Parental Control is a very useful app which lets you password protect all the apps you want so that your child, even by mistake, cannot open the same. After you have downloaded and installed the app, on the very main screen you will have to enter a password of your choice.


Enter the same and proceed further. On the next screen you have options like Change Admin Password, Auto Start at power up, Enable restrictions, Enable Safe Sandbox and Selected Apps. By default the Auto Start and Enable Restrictions options will be enabled. If you wish to change the password, you can do it by going into Change Administrator Password option.


Now to use the app i.e restrict the apps, tap on the modify button which is next to selected apps. This will open a list of all the apps installed on your device.


Here, by checking on the corresponding box, you can select the apps which you wish to put restriction on. Check the apps and press the back button to come to the previous menu. The checked apps will now be displayed under the select apps section.


Your apps are now all safe and password protected and every time when someone opens any of the restricted ones, the app will prompt to enter the set password after entering which only the same will start.


The SANDBOX feature is a nice one and allows you to access some of the restricted apps directly without entering the apps. This means that you can allow a restricted app by tapping on the restrict button next to it and then enable the sandbox feature. Now when you will open the app, it will show the Safe Sandbox first, with the allowed apps, and then the password screen. So you can access the allowed apps from the Sandbox window only without any need of removing them from the restricted list. Likewise you can allow many apps.


App Requirements: Compatible with Android devices. Requires android 1.5 and up.

Conclusion: Brilliant app and a must one for all those having curious children in their house
