Is AppLock legal?

The AppLock application is completely legal. It doesn’t go against any regulation regarding the use of Android and neither against any other law. At the end of the day, it’s an app that we can use to protect the access to certain functions of our mobile device, whether a smartphone or tablet, which are covered by the legitimate control that any user can have over his privacy or device. Remember that no rules say that you can’t hide photos or videos or block the access to an application, and neither do the conditions of use of the operating system indicate anything in this sense.
