    I am repurposing a Galaxy SIII phone as a remote for GE Wink lightbulbs. As I want it to be used by anyone I turned off all the android logins and passwords.

    The problem is, to get the GE Wink app from play store I have to log into my gmail account. Once I do that the gmail app syncs to my google account and is available to anyone as the non password protected phone sits on a table for easy access.

    Is there a way to password protect or disable both the gmail and play store apps, only on this phone, while allowing anyone to access the GE Wink app?

    I would prefer not to have to log into gmail on my other password protected devices.

    I found an app surelock, but would prefer just putting password protection on gmail and playstore only on this one device.

    Does the phone have to be connected to your Google account for the GE Wink app to work? If not, disable the Playstore and Gmail apps.
