There has been a bug for a while where I lock apps I use frequently, however sometimes when I press 'Close All' it will close a ramdom app of choice despite it being locked. It is at complete random so I cannot reproduce it.

The issue of locked apps closing when using the 'Close All' function on Android devices is a software anomaly. Locked apps should remain open and running unless there are specific bugs or issues causing them to close unexpectedly.

Which phone do you have? Locking an app in the App Overview is not a native feature of the basic Android 14 -- it's most likely a feature added by the manufacturer (presumably Samsung in One UI 6.1?).

I noticed whem this happens, the app isn't even locked at all, even though I know I did. Once it is closed and reoponed, the lock returns. So it's not that the apps are ignoring the lock, it's that for some reason some of them don't even display the icon.
