Most secure locker but you must use pin

Great. This is my preferred app locker because it's resource-friendly. It can be slow/laggy sometimes, but that might just be my old phone to blame. Thank you for adding tasker support!

Great Concept, Horrible Results This app soft bricked GALAXY Note 3. After installing, it started giving me alerts I needed to restart my phone. After enabling in Xposed, I rebooted, and at the carrier screen I got stuck. I tried rebooting several times, and even wiped the cache from recovery and let it sit for 20 minutes, it never got by the carrier screen. Eventually I gave up and did a full wipe and reset. Now I get to reinstall all my apps again... Minus this one. What a shame.
