Good Lock is an interesting application offered by Samsung for flagship Galaxy devices. This app consists of several excellent services called modules and apps that make the One UI software system highly customizable.

As always, several Good Lock apps and modules become no longer compatible with the devices running Android 12-based One UI 4.0. As the customization of the UI is based on the operating system, the company needs to optimize Good Lock again.

In a recent development, Good Lock in charge in South Korea shared the entire plan of the Good Lock 2022 that will be made for Galaxy devices running One UI 4.0 based on Android 12. The upcoming version will come with several new features and improvements for all the modules and applications.
