Your phone houses some of the most sensitive data in your life. Phone numbers, private notes, emails, internet history, financial information, personal photos—virtually everything you do can be captured and catalogued on your phone. That’s why it’s of utmost importance that you secure your phone against any potential threat, be it damaging malware, unsecure web pages, or the physical theft of your phone. Your smartphone is a part of your identity, so securing it should be a no-brainer.

If you don’t have any extra security on your smartphone, now is the time to try out some of the options available. Here are some of the best security apps and services out there for Android and iOS:

GO Launcher EX IconGO Launcher EXAndroid has been liked by many partly for its open and customization nature. Even right from the Android home screens, you can run a free app to make changes to your liking and extend their features.

GO Launcher EX, the extended version of GO Launcher, is one of such apps and that is widely used for replacement of your home screens to launch your apps.

With this app installed, you can increase the number of home screens as many as you need. You can pinch a home screen to get a preview of all your home screens. From the preview, you can add or remove any home screens, re-order them, tap a home icon to set it as the default home screen, or quickly jump to a home screen by tapping its thumbnail.

At the bottom or by the side of a home screen, you can increase the docked icons up to 15.

Tap the docked app drawer, you can see your recent running apps, close all running programs with one touch, and quite similar to the way you do with Apple’s iOS, you can touch and hold an app icon in the list of all apps, then press the ‘x’ sign to uninstall an app, or drag an app icon over the other to place them in a folder.

These are just a small part of the many features that come with this superb app.

Give it a spin to find out more user settings and many goodies including themes and widgets exclusively designed for this app launcher.
