Set boundaries with selective HTC EVO app protection

PadlockDon't you hate it when someone asks to see your HTC EVO and then starts looking around a little too much?

Since you were the one who handed over the phone (and unlocked whatever password protection you have on it) in the first place, you might not feel comfortable settings "rules" about what the person can do. So you end up just sitting there pretending not to care that all of your photos are being viewed, settings are being changed, contacts are being scrolled through,and text messages and/or emails are being skimmed.

HistoryEraser offers some peace of mind for when you don't want to hover over the person you've temporarily entrusted your EVO to, but an even better choice for dealing with these kinds of situations are apps like AndLock or App Protector. Both let you add password protection to apps of your choosing (AndLock even lets you protect just parts of apps), which means you don't have to tense up anymore when someone asks to see your EVO and—god forbid—takes it out of your sight.
