Microsoft has launched an app called “Google Play Store Lockdown”, which can prevent apps from being downloaded by certain devices.
The app is a free download and can be used to check if your device has an Android lock.
“If you find a locked Android device, it’s best to get the app, which will give you the ability to disable or unlock it,” the app’s description says.
If you have a device that’s not locked, “just try again with a different device”.
Google has also updated the “Lockdown” app to check the lock status of your device.
For those that don’t want to be locked out of Google Play, Microsoft has released a similar app.
In addition to the above, the “lockdown” program can also be used as a means to temporarily lock down a computer, mobile phone or other device.
“The lockdown app will also detect and report a device lock issue,” Microsoft says.
“The lockup process is only active for one device and you can temporarily lock that device, but you can’t temporarily lock another device.”
Microsoft’s app is also available for iPhone, iPad and Android.
Google is offering an alternative version of its lockdown program, called “Smart Lockdown”.
This is a one-time, “lock-free” setting that can only be disabled for a limited time.
It’s available in the Google Play store for iOS and Android, and can also lock a phone and tablet.
Microsoft also says that the app “can automatically lock a computer when it detects that a device has been tampered with”, but that it’s “not yet available on Android”.
It says that “it will be available in future releases” for Android and iOS.
