"I'm really paranoid about how much these tech companies know about you. When you use some other browsers or services, you're unwittingly letting them know about everything you search, visit, look for, and do online, and even your location I'm SO OVER THAT!! So it's good that a browser like BRAVE exists"

    "CM Applock is pretty straightforward in keeping people out of your apps. It locks it with a simple passcode, so even if you leave your phone around, they won't have access to them. Perfect for Facebook and Twitter!"

    "I recently started a new position at work and as the head tech guru, I had to find a way to keep the data on my phone safer. There are tons of applocks available in the android store but I found alot of them to be unstable and full of ads, which I just don't like. Smart AppLock has been the best one that I have found so far. I feel like it really keeps my information safe and secure."

    "I think Smart AppLock is a fantastic solution to prevent others from accessing apps you want to keep private. I myself use it for incoming calls so that I have to input a passcode before answering so that I guarantee no one else accepts any of my calls."

    "After my first phone was stolen, I wanted something that could help keep my apps secure if it ever got stolen again. This app does the job really well. I haven't had my phone stolen with the app installed yet, but if it does happen - I will have the peace of mind knowing that the thief won't have access to my banking information and credit card numbers as well."

    "While the first password on your phone is usually enough everynow and then we want to lock something else up to ensure it is perfectly secure. I for instance would not want someone in my phone settings or they could mess with everything. Perfect AppLock allows for you to lock up your apps or settings on you phone and protect them well."
