Developers listing their tokens on decentralized exchanges are granted LP tokens when they initiate a pool. These LP tokens, once in their possession, can be transferred like any other tokens on the blockchain they have been minted on, or bridged to another one.
A liquidity locker allows the developer to store these LP tokens in a smart contract, revoking his permission to move these LP from a start date to an end date.
For a deeper dive into this topic, we recommend having a read of our medium article about liquidity locking.

You will be taken to the screen presented below. There you can check how much of the liquidty is locked and for how long as well as the expired locks.
What if the project wasn't launched yet?
If the presale is still ongoing, there is no locked liquidity for a project yet, although, you can check how much liquidity is going to be locked on the launch and for how long.
To check this, go to the presale page of the project you are interested in, select the tab info. There, you will find information about how much liquidity is going to be locked and for how long (highlighted in red).
