Do you know how to use Hexlock? If not, here is a quick guide for you:

How To Use Hexlock

First, download and install Hexlock on your android device. Then open the app, you will see a screen like this:

Now choose a passcode type. For this tutorial, I'm going to choose PIN (If you have a compatible smartphone you can also use your fingerprint as the passcode). Then enter the passcode in the next window and then renter the passcode in the next one.

Now you can start adding apps to lock profiles (Home, Work, Off). You can also customize the apps locked under each profile (example: all the apps you want to be locked when you're at work in your Work profile) as you like.

Hexlock Work Profile

To activate a profile, tap the large icon on that profile's screen. When a profile is active, the locked apps can only be opened by entering your Hexlock passcode.

If you want to turn off all profiles so all apps are unlocked, open the Hexlock app and tap the "Off" icon.

In case if you forgot your passcode, you can set a new passcode very easily. All you have to do is, tap the Menu button (three dots at the top right of the screen) and select "Forgot your password?" Then confirm your identity and then you will be able to set a new passcode.

Here is how to use Media Vault: First, open Hexlock, and then either tap on the top left icon or swipe from the left edge to right. You'll see the option to go into the Media Vault. Then tap on "Media Vault". then import files to the Vault, that's all.

If you want to restore files from the vault, just select the files and then tap on the broken lock icon and then tap on "RESTORE".
