  • If you are also locked out of settings or are unable to force stop the app, I found another way around if you have access to a root explorer program. If you go into your data/app folder and move the applock apk to another location, like just to the data folder, then wait a few seconds and open your recent apps (long press hope) it will cause the app to crash, giving you access again. Putting the apk back into the data/app golder reverses this, so whomever put the lock on won’t know it’s been tampered with.

  • hey, that was a good idea but what if settings are locked and even install and unistall is also locked???

  • give me a method to hack applock if the settings and app installer both are locked.

  • Use Android’s Safe Mode feature to close every user-downloaded app, (if applicable) Uninstall the Smart lock feature of the applocker (note that you might need to disable administrator access to uninstall the app) and Install Greenify on the Play Store. Restart your phone, and open Greenify once. Close the app, restart the phone in safe mode again, then open settings. You have two things to do on settings: 1. Go to Security → Administrator Access then enable Greenify, and 2. Go back to settings, open Accessibility then enable Greenify. Then restart your phone one last time and open the Greenify app. Tap the add button and find the applocker app. Tap the checkmark then press the “zzz” button in the bottom.

    At least it worked, for me.
