Smartphone Settings is locked with AppLock. Then how to uninstall AppLock?

Many times it happens that we locked smart phone’s settings with App Lock, In this situation, we can’t uninstall the Applock without open the Settings. Then you can try to uninstall AppLock with other third-party uninstaller apps such as Easy Uninstaller App Uninstall, Uninstaller,, etc. And many antivirus apps also come with apps uninstaller program such as 360 mobile security, Clean Master & Avast free mobile security.

Or If you have locked the Google Play Store app then try 3rd party app stores to download these apps. Read more: How to get Android apps safely without Google Play Store?.

5. Start Your Phone in the Safe Mode

Today many Android Phone supports Safe Mode feature. The Phone “Safe Mode”  works same as the Windows Safe Mode feature. When you do restart Android in the Safe Mode, then It will only load important apps, that come preinstalled with the phone and other manually installed apps will not start. So, if the none method is working for you, the Safe Mode will 100% work. I have tested the method with Samsung Galaxy S8 and it worked for me.

Note: last 4 tricks (2, 3, 4, 5) will also work for all other app lock apps. If the problem is still not resolved, reset your smartphone to Factory Defaults:

I hope that your problem will be resolved.

  19. All the Applock pass code patterns have been changed in my LG Nexus 4 and I can’t connect to wifi or even get into the smartphone settings without the Applock pattern code. If I try uninstalling Cleanmaster it needs the pass code pattern that I do not have.
