    Anyone know what these lock icons do? I can't figure it out, it seems like they have no purpose other than to switch between a locked and unlocked symbol when you click them. Android 8.0 Huawei Mate 10 Pro.

    If you tap the lock icon then the trashcan does the locked item remain? It may be a way to keep a particular app running in the background while others are free to be killed to make room in RAM for another app.
