    "I use a screenlock like just about everyone else, but just in case someone knows or figures out my password I also like to lock some of my more sensitive communication apps. This app totally did the trick. Now I can lock specific apps with a pin as well as my phone overall. It gives me that added layer of protection that I really wanted."
