AppLock is a simple app, it is used to lock the individual app. By using AppLock one can easily lock any app and avoid any files/pictures to delete accidentally.
In most cases, we do not need to lock each and every app but few files. Even I do not like to lock my phone and unlock each time whenever I need to make a call or any other action. Only a few apps/wallet/gallery that holds sensitive and private data one need to watch out for.
This reason, we search for such feature to make it protected but phones do not come with this feature. Then we have to look for apps and some people even download apps from untrusted sources.
What is the use of AppLock?
As its name suggests, AppLock is to lock any app from those people you do not want to show any file. Most of the case where you think some apps/files are more important and nobody should access it without your permission. Or, just you want to make it safe from other people (children).

About feature – review
Free tool to lock your app available on Play Store which is rich in feature. Like all other apps lock, it allows you to lock individual apps with one touch. Lock and unlock very simply.
It does have the pattern lock when you start it the first time, however, you can change it to numeric lock. It also has an invisible pattern, you need to set so no one can see while unlocking it in public. With a randomized numeric keyboard, it is tough to guess the pin. So you too have to pay attention each time you enter the pin.
Another feature is setting profile for different purposes. You can customize the profile to only allow people to certain apps. Create the profile for guest, home, kids and others. Here you can create a shortcut which allows you to activate them by inserting the passcode.
Features like time and location lock allow you to lock by time or location. Be aware when you use time-lock that there is no deactivation time, so it will stay on that profile until the next time lock occurs.
Need Wi-Fi for location lock. Phone hooks up to a certain network, it locks the appropriate profile.
