    What is the best app which lets you lock Photos and Messages?

    Is that available in combination or as separate apps?

    Guide me to secure my phone other than the default lock.

    Apps that "lock" other Apps in Windows Phone are a placebo. The Apps are still available to open via the All Apps list. Security sandboxing within the OS prevents one 3rd party App from being able to exert that level of control over any other Apps.

    Locking your phone is still the best security. If you let someone borrow your phone and they can't stop snooping, you need to reconsider allowing them access to your device. This is not acceptable behavior from a "friend."

    Sleep/Wake opens the phone in full mode I believe (haven't used Kids Corner other than once to play with it) so Lockscreen PIN is your friend once more.

    Or... You may try App Corner. The only way it comes back to full mode is long pressing the power button and sliding to right. You may not want to tell them how to turn full mode on. Lol

    For photos lock, you can use Brilli Gallery Locker.
    There is no way to lock messages.
