Ratings and Reviews
Im gonna be totally honest, it was a good app at first. But a few months in and it started to glitch. it used to always accept my password but then it started to not accept the CORRECT one. This happened a while ago but after a couple of tries of inserting the same one, it finally worked. i just assumed i made an error. a couple of days ago it WOULDNT ACCEPT THE CORRECT PASSWORD AT ALL. And its not like i forgot it given that the password i use is the same one i use for most of my stuff. I contacted the maker and asked if i can reset it and tbh his help was of NO USE. The app is also restricted and blocked my access to other things such as my activity monitor and it was extremely frustrating. i tried deleting the app its self but even the steps i needed to take to delete it was blocked off too by the app. the only way i got rid of it was to purchace another 4.99 dollar app to wipe off this one. I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS APP TO ANYONE AT THE MOMENT. IT WILL NOT ACCEPT THE CORRECT PASSWORD AFTER A WHILE INTO PURCHASING THE APP.

Are you sure you did not forgot your password or that you are typing it the right way?
unsafe! please remove from app store!
i had this app set up a few days ago to password protect one single pointless app, kind of as a test. days later it suddenly started requesting a password for keychain access (?!), which i never enabled. i couldnt remember the password and i was completely locked out of my Mac. i was luckily able to switch to another admin account and delete the app to stop it from repeatedly reopening itseld and completely locking me out. this app should absolutely NOT be available in the App store where it's implied and assumed that the app has been evaluated.

Thank you for your review, I'm taking notes of all of them.
Did you forgot the password of the app? You can also send me an email to email@example.com and I will gladly provide you with more details.
Works Extremely Well
AppLocker does exactly what it says it will do. It also locks down your terminal, activity monitor, and keychain to secure your computer. I made the mistake of setting this up late at night and forgetting to write down my password. The developer was immediately available and EXTREMELY helpful and walked me through what I needed to do to re-gain access to my locked areas. After the customer support I received, I gladly upgraded to the Pro version. I highly recommend this app if you have sensitive apps you do not want accessed!
