    I have purchased many apps and games on my Google account. The games I purchase for my kids to play on their tablet.

    I can add my account on the tablet and get all the games to work, the problem is that it is very easy to access the rest of my accounts (email, contacts, messaging, etc...). I know I can go into the settings and disable sync on everything but the play store, but it is very easy to go back in and re-enable them.

    I worry because my kids spend most of their time with their mother (my ex-wife). I really don't want her to have access to all my accounts.

    My current solution is to use an app lock app to password protected access to the settings. The problem is that all of the settings are restricted. They can't even log into a new wifi access point.

    I'm wondering if there is a better way.

    Can I transfer ownership of the apps to another account? Maybe I can setup a new "family" account that we can all share.

    Is there a way to restrict access to only the sync settings? Or maybe require a password to login to specific accounts (e.g. No password for the play store, but a password for gmail, hangouts, etc..)

    Any other ideas?
