Ratings and Reviews
Great, but some features not working
Overall, great app that does the job of locking MacOS apps and logging failed access attempts. However, I have been unable to take full advantage of the snapshot feature, which is supposed to use the webcam to take a photo when an incorrect password is entered even though I have enabled webcam access for the app. When an incorrect password is entered, the green indicator light turns on, and the log reads "password entry failed. Photo evidence was taken," but I cannot access the photos that were supposedly taken. The "show photos" button does not respond when clicked, nor does the "view" button under the checked "Capture Photo after Password failure" box. There is also no location or folder where said photos would be stored, at least that I can find.
TouchID NEEDS TO BE ADDED
I bought this app thinking it would lock the apps i dont want anyone to use. It works just as that and is great. One issue I have is the fact that no touch ID is added. It would make everything more simple.
This app does what it promises
I like Lock Pro a lot more than other locking apps that are out there at the moment. I've tried Cisdem App Crypt, but I feel that Lock Pro is cleaner looking because it feels like something Apple would make. There are a couple of things I don't like but they are definitely not deal breakers.
1. I wish they would allow Touch ID to be used to unlock apps. I think this could be achieved through the use of the APIs for Local Authentication fingerprint checking. This would allow the lock screen to complete the passcode requirement with Touch ID verification. I have a MacBook Pro w/Touchbar and I love it when apps use Touch ID as an option for user verification.
2. There is also a slightly odd animation effect when the app opens that I I don't like. The app looks like it is opening, and you see the lock screen for a second. The then screen goes blank for a few more seconds before the lock screen comes back on. This animation issue is something that I believe will be ironed out with future updates.
In short, if you want a way to secure applications on your Mac then this is the app for you.
