One of the best looking security apps in the Play Store

Clean and efficient design
Distracts users with a recommended apps store that serves no real function
CM Security Antivirus AppLock for Android is mouthful to say, but it’s a great app that offers a lot of security for your device. Just like the name implies, the app protects your phone against viruses, nosy friends, and even has features to help locate your phone if you happened to leave it somewhere.
The first thing about this app that stuck out to me was the design of it. It’s really beautiful to just look at. The main page of the app is really simple. It let’s you know the status of your device and when it was last scanned. The scan button itself is really nicely designed and has a slick radiating animation.
Core features includes cleaning out all the junk files in your cache on both your internal storage and SD card. You can use the app lock feature to make sure unwanted people can view text messages pictures, or any other app you don’t want them getting into. It also supports the ability to block telephone calls, find your family, and locate and lock your phone if it get’s stolen.
Finally, it has its own mini-app store that it calls its recommended apps. I’m not sure how they pick these apps, and they link directly to the Play Store, but it’s there if you need it.
I found CM Security Antivirus AppLock to be one of the best looking security apps on the market - both in terms of design and functionality. All of the features are really easy to set up and use, and it has a surprising amount of them that are free.
