I want to lock my social apps and photos gallery on my iPhone 6s. Is there any inbuilt functionality or any offical app (free or paid version) or any workaround to lock any apps on my iPhone 6s or other iOS devices?
Many iPhone users want to lock apps to protect their privacy information and so do I. So I spent two days in doing some research about this topic. Locking apps on iPhone is one of the most secure ways to keep our privacy stuff from spying eyes. Although some third-party apps like Dropbox can provide lock facilities, but it is not easy to manage. In this article, I will talk about how to lock individual or multiple apps on iPhone or iPad and it falls into below three parts.
And I also found most of users want to know how to lock apps with mac app blocker, so if you are one of them, you can try some third-party Mac apps like AppCrypt to prevent your Mac apps from unauthorized access.
Restrictions, also known as Parental Controls, let you manage and restrict certain apps or websites, in-app purchases, content types and ratings, device functions (like deleting apps and installing new apps), privacy settings, cellular data use, and more on your iPhone and iPad. It helps you prevent others like your kids from inappropriate content and changing your settings. Follow below steps to turn on Restrictions and lock your certain apps on your iOS devices.
If you want to change your current restrictions passcode, you have to enter it to disable Restrictions, and then enter a new one to enable Restrictions. And this way is only available for built-in apps and not for third-party apps.
Guided Access helps you temporarily restrict your iOS device or make sure that all attention remains on a single app. It also prevents you or someone else from accidentally exiting to the Home screen or another app when you don't mean to. It is super useful when you want yourself or others focus on only an app or don’t want others to have access to other apps. To set up Guided Access, here's what you can do:
When someone else trying to leave the specific locked app will receive a banner message telling to triple-click the Home button to exit, if the person doesn’t know the pre-set passcode, he or she won't be able to exit Guided Access.
If you have jailbroken your iPhone or iPad, you can lock apps with ease via some jailbreak tweaks like BioPretect. BioProtect which is available for $2.99 on Cydia’s BigBoss repo allows you to protect your apps with Touch ID or passcode and keep your most valuable and private stuff from prying eyes. In order to use BioProtect, you must have your iPhone Touch ID enabled and follow below steps to see how this app works for you.
Tip: If you haven’t jailbroken your device and want to, please follow the guide Why You Should and Shouldn’t Jailbreak iPhone or iPad to understand the pros and cons of jailbreaking your device.
Though BioProtect can unlock and lock applications within a second using your fingerprints, but it is for users who are only interested in Touch ID-based app security. If you are interested in password-based app security, you can also try AppLocker for iOS. By the way, any iOS apps can create many temporary files like cache, cookies and eat up your space, so it is indispensible to clean up your iPhone or iPad regularly by using third-party iPhone cleaning tool to block app or websites on mac.
