    My YouTube app is locked so that "Clear all" does not remove it from the list of active apps. There is a small "lock" icon next to the title. How do I clear this lock? The phone is a BLU Vivo XL3+.

    Thanks very much for the reply. Unfortunately the reference you gave does not correspond to my phone. I do not find any "unlock" option.

    But there is no "security-›device administrator". I have looked through all the settings. Nowhere to unlock an app.

    Did the app come installed on the phone? If it did, it's a system app and the phone has to be rooted to remove it.

    I do not want to remove it, just remove the lock that keeps it in my recent apps list.
