No longer works on recent android versions
It's working for me seamlessly on all my devices using the Device Admin way (running A12.1, A12, A11).

Since even Xposed is dead and Magisk, EdXposed and LSPosed have undergone so much changes, honestly nobody shouldn't even try the Xposed method IMO. Device Admin method works great for me! :cowboy:

Yea, it works, but it is enough to kill the app to make it stop working and all security is gone

Ohh damn, I never thought in that direction & didn't try such things, it's a bummer then if you're looking for some serious protection 😐

I use a 3rd party Call Recorder app & just use MaxLock to spoof as if the app crashed if someone else tries to open it :p

Well, I haven't found any full reliable 3rd app locker since MaxLock stopped working with Xposed for me...😔

    This is the continuation of the MinMinLock module developed by @FatMinMin. All original credits belong to him!

    Features
    Conventional applock softwares use polling to detect current running process, which drains your battery and slowers your device. This is why I have created MinMinLock. With the help of Xposed framework, MinMinLock uses an event-driven method to detect app launch and lock it, which results in better performance.

    Visit MaxLock website!

    • Multiple lock types: Password, PIN, Knock code
    • SHA-256-encrypted passwords
    • Nice design
    • Many UI personalization options
    • Fake die: app force closes on start, click on "Report" in dialog, then enter "start"
    • Compatibility from Android™ JellyBean to Lollipop
    Tips and special features are located in About screen in-app

    We're finally there: MaxLock 7.0-RC1 has just been released to the Beta channel on Google Play!

    Today is exactly (*) one year after I published the previous version, 6.4.1, to the Play Store. Additionally, this is my 2000th post on XDA. Yay!
    I'll do a write-up of the full changelog tomorrow, because I'm just too tired now to do anything anymore. Also, even though this build is pretty polished and all, expect some bugs - not because I didn't test it thoroughly, but because this is Android after all - there will be a weird configuration which I couldn't reproduce breaking the whole functionality ^^
    So, please report any issues through the respective button in-app.
    Thanks for all the support, ideas, donations and motivation. I couldn't do all that without you. So, thanks! :)


    (*) It's past 2am here, so it's technically already the next day/a day later, but psst!

    Why do not you tell us whether you plan to continue supporting your product or not? If so, what are the terms, how long should we wait?
    Really, what's so complicated about reading the last pages?
    I already fixed the bugs that specifically affected support for Nougat, but some parts aren't finished yet. I could push out a release right now, but with usability issues and potential bugs keeping you away from using the app properly. Would you rather have an unfinished app now or wait a little more and get an awesome update?
    Also, your attitude towards myself and my "product", which I basically develop in my free time, without real payment apart from some small donations, doesn't help finishing the update faster..
    I didn't do nothing in the last weeks, if you just took a look at my GitHub you'd see quite some activity..
    People like you though, being impatient, rude and asking for ETAs, decrease my motivation quite heavily, so your impression of me abandoning the app might come true if it continues like that.

    So, please, just stay patient, all I can say you now is that it'll be worth the wait.

    Great app and thanks for it. But I have one question: Is it possible to hide notification that is "content hidden by maxlock"? Because if I want to make something really hidden then I don't want it to be declared as hidden by any other app. So, how to lock any app without any notification on the bar but with notifications as sound and vibration?

    I asked similar question about ten days ago and still waiting for an answer. Am I missing something or just being ignored intentionally?
    Thank you spaceman but as far as I could see dev can answer questions, and he can indicate the situation. According to you I must be patient because I'm using non-Nougat version, right? Is this a rightful approach?
    I think you all have to be equally patient, as Nougat support and the notification feature will likely come out on the same day :D
    And no, I didn't intentionally ignore you, I read your request (as I read all requests and messages in here), but I was too busy to reply at that moment (likely because that "about 10 days ago" was 11 days ago, which was my birthday..), and it kind of got lost in between the other posts.

    Also, that request is actually pretty old, as I have it on my to-do list for months already (see proof in attachments), so fear not, it'll likely be included in the next version.
    Cheers!

    So, I'm happy to finally announce that RC5 is now available on the Play Store! I'll push it to Xposed repo later today if everything works smoothly. Thanks for the patience!
