    Hello. Welcome to Android Central.

    You cannot securely lock the app, you can leave it running even with a half composed text with the Home or Recent apps button to select a homescreen, the app drawer / list or open another app in the meantime.

    The normal way, if I'm half normal, is to back out of it with the back button as many steps as necessary. It will ask if you want to save or discard anything you were working on.

    The Message app may stay in RAM and the recent app list. Android keeps RAM close to full until it needs more, unlike Windows. Clearing it away will have Android putting it back or filling the space with what it deems you will use.
    (How am I doing, Rukbat?)

    When you have time, check out the Getting started guide,
    [GUIDE] Getting Started with Android (UPDATED 2016 for Nougat)

    and the various Ambassadors Guides in Android Central Community - General Help and How To - Ambassadors Guides, Tips and How - To's.

    Here's the one for RAM:
