App lock not working

I've noticed that the App Lock feature in Bitdefender Mobile Security works for a period and then suddenly stops. Any advice on troubleshooting or resolving this issue?


  • Hello @Aneehs and welcome to the Community!

    In order to fix this issue, follow the steps below:

    1. Go to Settings and scroll down to Installed Apps;
    2. Tap on Bitdefender Security;
    3. Tap on Permissions;
    4. Make sure that the Display pop-up window permission is enabled; if not, please tap on it and set it to Accept.

    Also, please check that Bitdefender Mobile Security is excluded from the Battery Optimization settings:

    1. Go to Settings and tap on Battery & Performance;
    2. Under Battery Saving, tap on Choose Applications;
    3. Tap on Bitdefender Security and choose No Restrictions

    Let us know how it goes.

    I understand. Sounds like a task for the Support teams then:

    Scroll down to state your contact reason, then choose from the available contact channels, chat, phone and email/ticket. Chat would be the fastest way to reach them.
