All the bad reviews are true. They created an app that permanently locks all of your files for free and then tell you that data recovery is a premium feature, even though it's the first option in the settings of the free version. Unlocking files the way it was "intended" does not send them back to your main gallery and takes them off the app gallery. They enter a second hidden folder where they are still useless. Customer service could not fix the problem let alone understand it half the time.

Lost all of my locked images. 90+ photos gone! My gallery just shows the image data (number and date) and a default photo icon for each one. I've had it for me years and I hadn't used it in a while and everything has just vanished. I tried the recovery and it said there was nothing to recover. I would NOT recommend this app. Use your phone's built in secured folder option instead.

Sorry for the inconvenience, if the recovery feature does not work so this seems that you have deleted your files from the phone's file manager, that's why your photos are being given an error. Thanks, Folder Lock Team.

I like this app. I only saved MP3 files on it. The only problem I'm facing is when I'm playing a music and the music finished. The app automatically moves to another music but there is pup up appears on the screen stating that it's moving to another file and the pup up stays forever. Can you fix it? BTW, I'm using the app on android unit(on my car).
