Updated iLock For BlackBerry Keeps Your Information From Prying Eyes

Even though BlackBerry is renowned around the world for it's in built security it is limited to what, exactly you can secure. Most security functions to the end user do not go beyond encrypting the SDCard and making sure a singular password is set to block all access to the device. So what happens if you just want to block certain aspects of your BlackBerry smartphone? Say your messages or your media content. You're out of luck in that area unless you look towards a third party application such as iLock from MMMOOO. While the application is not new, it has been recently updated with some more features which make the app more secure then ever before.

  • Lock/Hidden the file and folder, the newly rocking function in iLock
  • Enable add an app Manually if it was not in pre-refreshed list
  • Uses a new & texture icon, looks nice in different style themes
  • Fixed some little bugs, more stable & smooth

Version 1.1 is now available for purchase, only costing $3.99 but in case you are wanting to give it a spin before spending your hard earned cash you can check out the free 7 day trial that is available.

I hid a picture folder with the trial. I went to check it out and I select picture folders and the folder is hidden. But if you select all pictures then all the pictures that I wanted to be hidden are there!! Lame.

Also does anyone know if you can ONLY lock the pictures application and not the whole media application??

I only need pictures locked. Not music and videos and the rest of the media section. Kind of annoying to have to input a password just to get to my music

Use FileScout (even the free version) and create a new folder. Place your pictures in that folder, hide the picture files AND the picture folder you created. Hiding them is done from the Details command. Please note that you will still be able to see them via Mass Storage mode.

You can add the files individually (not folder) and it will not appear on all pictures. To make them reappear just un-check those files.

The poses of the two guys just made me think douchebags. Seriously, is it supposed to look fun locking your phone?
