    Question Application Security?

    Is there a ways to protect some of your apps since I prefer not to encode any password on my machine every time I unlock it?

    I tried using app lock but... It can be uninstalled inside the app list using the menus located at top and can be closed using the mini task manager.

    You have to put all your of your apps and settings on lock that can uninstall applock. I've used applock and it's a great app. You even have to put play store on lock.

    I tried placing everything locked. Still doesn't protect itself from uninstalling it inside the apps list.

    To be sure we are on the same page.. it is located beside the widgets tab.

    Still need help on how to counter the mini taskbar application.

    When you go into applock there's a list of installed and system apps that are on your device. Check the ones you want locked and put a password in it. So if you go into settings and then apps on the device applock will ask for the password at settings. Without the password you can't go into apps

    Thanks for your time really appreciate it.

    I already lock play store, settings and install/uninstall.
    Your right.. it will ask a password on these location and install/uninstall will ask your password when you uninstall it inside settings, however on the app list, either using downloaded application tab or more options (upper right) it will uninstall the program without asking a password.



    And using the mini app panel (lower right) you can open task manager without being asked with a password and let you close app lock. (I already lock task manager)

    Well.... I just done some app hunting... and I finally found the best app lock.
    It seems the #1 app on google play isn't as good as it seem.

    Thanks again for replying

    To prevent AppLock being uninstalled, you can enabled the advanced protection in the settings.
