Hi,
New feature of ICS, "Recent Apps with thumbnails" is a privacy concern for me. As it shows my personal text messages in the thumbnail to people whom i handover my device. I have already locked message application but still ICS is able to capture a screenshot of it and displays it in Recent App history. Is there a way to bypass an application from Recent apps history?

May be you can delete them...
If your question is to remove the item from the recent list...

Yes you can do that by swiping it to left or right...

And if you want it to not show up permanently then i am not sure of it...
