The Android lock screen has evolved many times over the years. There have been various slide-to-unlock methods and OEMs have always put their own spin on things. As it turns out, there are also a lot of lock screen apps in the Play Store that can do even more. These days, we usually recommend people just use a finger print scanner to bypass the lock screen altogether. It’s okay if you don’t want to do that, though. Here are the best lock screen apps for Android!
It’s important to note that lock screen apps aren’t as popular as they once were. As a result, we generally recommend sticking to the regular lock screen or using your device’s always-on display (if available). In most cases, you’re hitting a fingerprint reader to bypass it entirely anyway. Plus, third party lock screen apps aren’t more secure than regular ones anyway.
