About this app

BatApps hides other apps on your phone using the "Device Administrator" permission and a secret calculator PIN screen. It creates a secondary profile to help protect your private information by controlling when to hide or reveal the apps installed on that profile. You can configure the BatApps PIN screen to disguise itself as a calculator and reveal your apps only when your second profile's PIN is entered into the calculator. It can also be configured to automatically hide your apps after a set time or even every time your phone's screen is turned off.

With BatApps you can have completely separate contacts, call log history, photos, or any other application you'd like to keep private. It is a secure vault for all your data, apps, and file. Unlike other solutions, your second profile will have a separate Play Store enabled, so any app you download from it will only be available when your second profile is activated. Install a burner phone app with a different phone number, messaging app, or even an Uber or Lyft app and keep you destination history hidden from anyone snooping on your phone.

Most importantly, BatApps does not require an identity such as an email or phone number to use it and it does not collect or send any data from your device to our servers. The ONLY exception to this rule is to validate in-app purchases but this is done anonymously through the Google Play Store.

*** Important Uninstall Instructions ***

Because BatApps creates a second user profile on your device, uninstalling it requires an additional step. You must first delete the profile it created, you can do so by tapping the 'Remove Protected Profile' option listed in the 'Uninstall' section of the BatApps 'Settings' screen. Refer to the last screenshot of this Store listing or the video link below for details. To uninstall BatApps from your primary profile you do so as you would any other app.

I have been working with BatApps for several months now and have found it to be a great way to add an additional profile to my device without root. --- But I have one little problem - I cannot re-activate my subscription purchase after a factory reset, or app re-install. --- (Also, this is a great alternate launcher, which I used during a pre-reset data backup while my phone was acting up due to another app malfunctioning!) I see great potential here, but this issue needs to be fixed ASAP.

Thanks for the review and support. You should be able to access your subscriptions by logging into the newly created BatApps profile with the same Google account that has the active subscription. Unfortunately the one time purchase items such as the calculator do not persist across different profiles. We responded to your inquiry via email 🏴‍☠️

This app is awesome! You can have 2 sets of apps and quickly disable the second set on demand. It is a little diifficult to get use to because it is not super obvious when the second set is active unless you have a bunch of apps installed. Also I dont like that you have to go to the settings to logout. Still desrives all 5 stars!!

Thanks for the feedback! Will definitely look into the possibility of having a configurable option (in case some want it discreet) to have the app drawer or home screen look different when it's active. To logout without having to navigate to the 'Settings' screen you can set BatApps to automatically logout everytime the screen is turned off.

The app was glitched and says it isn't currently allowed to be set up as the profile or device owner. There seems to be a glitch that makes batapps disconnected from the work profile, and I habe to delete the work profile manually.
