    Is there some app to manage the phone? Or perhaps there's a way to do this without 3rd party apps?
    Basically we got our daughter her first phone ever 2014 MX and just in case I'd like to lock it down as much as i can. I don't mind her using apps and obviously calling but I did set a limit on data and in general i don't want her any any of her friends to potentially screw with settings.

    Thanks!
    Oh yea, running Lollipop

    As I understand it (I'm still running 4.4.2 for certain reasons), there's a "parental mode" in Lollipop. Just set Settings as one of the apps the person using the child mode can't access.

    I just googled it and from what I saw it looks like that's actually one feature Lollipop is missing. Man, they were so close with the Guest mode but this is really not what I'm looking for. Unfortunately there are so many shady "parental" apps in the play store that I don't know where to start

    Agreed.... If she really wanted to get around it she'd probably do it but I know she won't have patience LOL. It's kinda like a steering wheel lock on a car.
    After doing a little research I think all I need is an app lock app but I need good references since the store is filled with junk
