The App Lock feature protects your private data. You can lock apps like Facebook, WhatsApp, Photos, Messages, Snapchat, Instagram, Viber, Gmail, Settings, and any other apps to prevent others from accessing these apps. When you open an app protected by App Lock, Kaspersky app prompts you to unlock access to the app using your secret code, unlock pattern or fingerprint.

App Lock is only available in the premium version of Kaspersky app.

Kaspersky app uses the device settings to lock apps. To ensure proper protection, we recommend that you:

  • Protect the Settings app with App Lock.
  • Protect Kaspersky app against unauthorized uninstallation by selecting the Uninstallation protection checkbox in the Where is My Device settings.
