Re: App lock

What device are you using and what Android version?

Re: App lock

Just to confirm, you are leaving the app running in the background when you go to another app. Then you try to access the app from the recent apps button and you are asked for the App Lock pass code?

Are you saying it does not lock the app at all? And just the one app? Try disabling that app in App Lock. Then restart your device and re enable the app and test.

Re: App lock

I restarted the phone, it is currently working. However, I have noticed that the application did not ask the password even for its launch.

Are you referring to the App Lock app does not ask for the password? If so, open App Lock and tap on the three bars at the top left, then tap on the setting for Device Administrator, and deactivate that. The go to Android settings - Apps and look for App Lock. Clear the App Data. Then restart your device, reset the device administrator, and test. You will probably have to re enable the apps you want to protect.

This may work for you also.
