@Max

The newly released 5.3.2-beta version still unable to lock some apps like LINE and Skout… I'm unable to provide the log now, but hopefully you can help by giving some advice.

Many congrats on reaching and grabbing the 1000th message =P

Update is cool.
Options are nicely seperated in the UI.
thanks max.
Working fine in my kitkat, no issues so far.

Thanks, since I'm not using line, could you send me your Xposed logs over? Maybe I can try then why it doesn't work.
Thanks :'D

hello develloper :)
Hello ,
Is this an app locker, like if someone else grabs your phone, it wont allow them to use apps without a password?
Or is it the one that keeps the apps from running by itself (for e.g. maps, gallery, and other google apps)?

1) I wanted something to prevent apps from running by themselves in the background, even when killed.(the maps, gallery, all those apps etc keep running back within few minutes after I kill them).
2) I wanted something to stop apps from running by themselves. Or stop one app from pulling another app from death.
like for e.g. Firefox(latest version) secretly runs facebook+messenger apps in the background, even if they are killed.

Will this module help me for what I require?
Thank you.

Your 1st question is a strange one, as the title 'MaxLock' suggests that its an applocker.

But anyway, you might wanna try greenify as it hibernates your apps while not in use, so they're practically not running or using up any resources.

Also, here is an xposed module that i think does exactly what you say. Also its compatible from 2.3 all the way to 5.1. Check this link below:

Hello Sorry, I didn't know how to describe what the Maxlock could be. Alright, thank you. I am going to try that.
So, after all which one would be the best that will sit in the background without eating resources, and still doing its work perfectly?
Greenify or Prevent Running?
Thank you.

Greenify hibernates apps which you aren't using all the time, that they consume not performance in background. You won't get notifications from these app though.

Prevent running on the other hand only stops apps from being launched by mistake via Intents, e.g. Firefox launching Facebook+Messenger for you.
(Hope the last one is correct)

MaxLock is just an app which shows a lockscreen on locked apps to protect your stuff from nosy friends/etc.

@Maxr1998 maybe I missed it, but is it possible to get random numbers when using the PIN lock? it makes it harder for someone to see my PIN code.

Not, not now. I will maybe implement it sometime, but I still want to fix some other thing in before.

@Maxr1998 the beta build you posted some days ago has some weird bugs. Apparently i can kill the lockscreen and bypass it when an app is loading (the white screen before locksceeen appears).

Also if i lock the screen on an open chat in whatsapp (not the main 'chats' activity) sometimes the lockscreen does not load or i can just do a normal back press to bypass it. I have not witnessed this behaviour on any other app as of now.

I would like to send logs but i am not sure which settings to tick in 'syslog', as i have not done much logging. I try to solve my problems myself first or just wait for a patch/update. Please check attached screenshot.
