Messenger and Chat Block is a nice lock app that gives you the chance to block access to any app that you want on your Smartphone so that no one but you can access its contents. It is an excellent app for people who are very conscious about the privacy of their Smartphones. If you don't want people spying on the chats you have had on your apps like WhatsApp and Facebook then this is the lock app for you. It has a simple and easy-to-use user-interface which makes it easier to use for everyone. I was extremely happy with the layout and design of the app too which is at once simplistic and robust.
The Messenger and Chat Block requires you to 'Enter your PIN' to get the app started. This PIN that you are going to have to set will need to have 4 digits in total. You will have to confirm the 4 digits of the PIN before you are given the chance to block the apps that you want. Make sure that you remember these 4 digits as you will need them to unblock the app that you have locked using this lock app later on. I had no problems in accomplishing this simple task. It was very pleasing to have found an app that worked so quickly and locked the apps just by entering a 4-digit PIN.
Once you have set your PIN, Messenger and Chat Block will let you lock any and all of the chatting apps that you have installed on your Smartphone. Be it Gmail, Hangouts, Messages, WhatsApp or Messenger, Messenger and Chat Block can effectively lock down any app that you have. The process of locking the apps using this app is quite simple. Just tap on the 'On' checkbox in front of the app name and this incredible lock app will block access to its contents to one and all. It's really that simple! No one is going to be able to view the chat messages of the locked app. Not even you!
Unblocking the apps in order to view their chat messages will require you to simply uncheck the 'On' checkbox and turn it to 'off'. You will need to re-enter the PIN of 4 digits that you had set earlier in order to unblock access to the apps. So, it is necessary that you memorize the PIN or write it down somewhere so that you won't forget it. This is important because without the PIN, this lock app won't let you access any chat messages of the locked apps. Moreover, it is better to keep the PIN as simple as possible. I had kept a simple PIN and was thus able to memorize it easily. This was why I had no trouble in unblocking my apps.
Messenger and Chat Block allows you to change its configuration as well. There are plenty of options available which let you decide how you want the app to work. You can use these options to configure this lock app according to your liking. The configuration process is just as simple as was the locking feature. You simply have to check on boxes in front of the app options you want to use. Once they have been selected, these options will become activated and will start helping you in locking down your chat and messenger apps.
