  1. Kishore Bole-avatar

    A nice app. Sometimes tiles are not seen but videos play. Fix it so that tiles are visible.

  2. Tito Zavala-avatar

    The Best by Far. very easy to use and the most important thing it really recover ALL your fotos and videos either deleted or lost.

  3. Mohammad Zahid Kayhan-avatar

    Mohammad Zahid Kayhan


    When I unlocked my photos, most pics got corrupted. And now i can't even recover them. Give a solution

    Folder lock funtion of this app do not work proper. Locked apps by using it app automatically unlocked

  5. XeroPulse-avatar

    Great app, does exactly what it says.

  6. Aces of Athens-avatar

    I downloaded this app for one reason. I watch certain um... videos. I'm an 18 year old boy, so you know what I mean. Using Firefox kept my history seperate from Google (main browser), and I used FL on Firefox. That part works. But the app itself must always be on in the background. So what? It just locks things right? Well for some reason, it drains your battery a ton. It drained my battery 159% over 2 consecutive charges. But if you force stop it, it doesn't maintain the lock.

  7. Larry DuPlain-avatar

    Total Ripoff. I paid for the full version. Cannot lock SD card, they blame it on Google, of course. Cannot create new folders, get naming error. Totally useless. Don't waste your time & money like I did.

  8. Chairmane Panelo-avatar

    Chairmane Panelo


    Highly recommended app. I really love this app because it's not like the other folder lock when you encrypt your images or whatsoever you what to make private. It will encrypt then after a week it will vanished. I just wish it will not change when you upgrade your system

  9. Patrick Thompson-avatar

    Patrick Thompson


    It's fairly ok. I've found out a key thing about this: Don't delete the old folder that you encrypted, but delete only the FILES within the folder. If you delete the folder itself then the lock app will put it back UN-ENCRYPTED. It needs to have the old EMPTY folder present in order to keep its filed encrypted in the locked app. This is crazy, but that's been my experience with it. It keeps one ecrypted folder in the lock app, and one empy folder in the original location on your device.

  10. John Evensen-avatar

    Full screen ads, with audio, which can't be closed for 5 sec. are too intrusive. Not interested in waiting (& listening) to 5 sec ads each time i open the app. Features seem good. If the ads were bottom or top banner ads, i can live with that, but not full screen. Sorry.

  11. Balaji M.K-avatar

    I used this app to hide my call recorder. Since I couldn't hide the call recorders in your audio folder, i hided the recorded files in Miscellaneous folder. While restoring the files, it didn't work because it is not decrypted. Please help me to sort out the problem as soon as possible. Please don't copy and paste it just for the sake of reply. If you have your email Id please go amd read it and then respond to it. If you don't know how to solve the issue, please shut it the app and stay away.

  12. Erin Francis-avatar

    Great free app. Allows me to store notes and photos safely out of nosey peoples view which is exactly what I needed. My only complaint is when uploading photos it goes from your oldest camera photos to most recent so can take a while to reach the image you want. I can't find a way to change this in the free version but perhaps you can in the paid one.

  13. ra_viscovich 23-avatar

    ra_viscovich 23


    Pretty good app, gets the job done and unless they really dig deep in the files it's pretty hard to find, but getting used to it took me a while tho with transferring the files.

  14. Hard Fiber-avatar

    Useless app. This app fails to hide files in SD card but instead it transfers the file to Internal memory. Completely useless app as internal memory is very much needed for system applications. What's the use of SD card then???

  15. S S Meghwal-avatar

    Hi i had upload some call recordings in this app but now the call recordings are not working. What can i do to recover the call recordings? Because the call recordings was very very important for me.if possible please suggest me the remadial measures. Please help me.

  16. Ranbir Bhogal-avatar

    Changed device from Note 8 to Note 10+, old pin does not work and app shutsdown when i try to press forgot pin. Help and i will rate it 4 out of 5 mostly cuz of the ads when i leave a folder of mine :( but i can put up with that.

  17. Stacy Comilang-avatar

    It's great but can't retrieve my pin since I forgot what it was!! Can anyone help? Not even sure how to get to the app setting menu to do the data recovery.

  18. Shubhrangshu Bhowmik-avatar

    Shubhrangshu Bhowmik


    You can hide photos and also other files. You can never see the file at the place where it was. It only can views under this app. And you even unable to access it by connecting with the computer through data cable. If you want the cloud support then you have to purchase otherwise it is free.

  19. sudipta roy-avatar

    Encrypted file can be accessed by file manager. Crashed a couple of times.

  20. Carlie Farmer-avatar

    Seems to be great app apart from setting dates. No option to hand type so have to scroll month by month ... Alot of scrolling for date of birth!!!

    Why cant I save my data to sd card on my Note 9... I'll change star to star if able to in the future.. ...Thank you for your reply..I do have Folder Lock on my desktop... I'll keep checking for the sd card update to allow use..

    Nahusanay Aregawe


    great app until i updated it to the latest version. all the pictures and videos stored there are saying corrupted and im not able to view them!

  23. Som nath-avatar

    Excellent experience of using folder lock. Very easy to operate. Of late some files locked get deleted automatically.

  24. Alain Duckers-avatar

    The app registers who is opening the phone through the front facing camera without telling you. I can't seem to be able to use the app without the app registering through the FFC. Why is the app spying on who's accessing the app? I know you give permission for the app to use the camera. I just don't see the reason for it if you can't access the pictures being taken by the app.

  25. Mista Sykness-avatar

    It does the job, a lot of ads though. Still dependable and not a wasted download.

  26. Ruchi Goel-avatar

    I purchased this app in 2018 but for past many months I have not been able to use the app... The uploaded documents do not open even after repeated attempts... Kindly advise

  27. Kimberly Wiltshire-avatar

    Kimberly Wiltshire


    It defaults to the photos and fikes that are oldest. So if you want to download an image you have to scroll through several yrars of photos. And so far I havent found a way to change that default. Makes no sense.

  28. Fahd Fawad Ali Shah-avatar

    Fahd Fawad Ali Shah


    much much much good and secure app ever i seen

  29. BP Chuah-avatar

    Good for hiding stuffs. But beware pictures just disappear after locking it and reopen. Especially if you want to put a lot of picture in one folder. Looks like this app has a limitation on numbers of item it can locked up

  30. Lewis Issac-avatar

    Didn't work. Locked the apps with a pin but the pin didn't work and I had to unlock the apps to access them again.

  31. Rajesh Biswal-avatar

    Uninstalled, useless features👎 Bcoz i found my locked docs in "folder lock" folder of file explorer; which are readable by google chrome and file reader. It must be not readable by any other softwares 👎👎👎👎👎👎👎

  32. Movies Worlds-avatar

    One of the best app for hiding photos videos realy love it but there is one problem too much ads plz remove the ads other wise i wll give 5 str But realy a good appp i hve given 3 str bcz of ads hope in next update they will fix it

  33. This Yellow Face-avatar

    This Yellow Face


    For the pin password, the number 9 is bugged and is registered as "1". There is an ad that keeps showing you another one of its product. If you store gifs, it won't be animated and will only be one frame.

  34. Muhmmad Waseem-avatar

    A bit better but still need improvement in some features like folder in file manager

  35. Stasys Stockus-avatar

    From the first look it's easy to use. But when I decided to unlock some photos and leave it in gallary the problems begin. I can't unlock photos..

  36. Jack Yang-avatar

    Doesn't support sdcard. It moves the file from sdcard to the internal storage space. The program works correctly, but not for what I need.

  37. Ken Dingel-avatar

    Was previously good, cloud syncing does not work well. Uploads half the time, when I reset my phone download didn't work after reinstalling several times. Even with paid version.

  39. Doug Ibrahim-avatar

    Photos are copied from my folder to folder lock folder. Although the folder can no longer be seen in the gallery, they can still be accessed in the file manager.

  40. Muslim Unity-avatar

    Well it is very good to be honest But sometimes it just opens it self please fix it And it is a very amazing app and now my videos are some how crashed plz give those back and fix it

  41. Bilal Mansoor-avatar

    Amazing app , easy to use , hope for more security upgrades in futur for free

  42. JayaKumar K-avatar

    So far so good. I've been able to store photos and documents which I prefer to keep out of reach from others. Need to wait and see about the security and reliability part of it.

  43. Kamran Hafeez-avatar

    Worst application i had my videos saved and didnt used any 3 party software still i cant get my videos back contacted the developer also but no use they r saying i have used some 3 party or deleted that file and doesn't give any response or solution.

  44. Stephen Hill-avatar

    It is ok. Not great. The ads are very annoying. Interface could be better.

  45. anu gsp-avatar

    Looks like it's a waste to purchase full version since it will allow or display only a few folders to lock data. Appreciate developers effort.

  49. mick k-avatar
