Extra protection for your apps

With this app you could protect app with a password, PIN or pattern. The Android lockscreen is used for that. The protection could not be removed with a simple long press on back-button, like with most other apps. You could even protect not straight startable apps eg the package-installer.
Donation: You could select a unlimited count of apps.

TouchWiz users (most Samsung devices): Please enable in settings the compat mode BEFORE reboot the device with enabled module!

Features:
All features are supported since Android 4.2. With older versions not supported options are hidden in the settings.
  • Different observation modes: First start of apps or while using it
  • Duration of unlock time configurable
  • Autmatic locking could be switched off.
  • Notification options: Always, while unlocked, never
  • Duration of unlock could be configured
  • Pre-lock slider could be disabled for app unlocking
  • Minimal and maximal time frame of unlocking configurable
Examples:
  • The device is protected by slider, protected apps with a PIN
  • The device is protected by slider and PIN+TimePIN, protected apps with pattern
Or you could use custom unlock mehtods without the keyguard:
  • Crash report
  • Knock Code
  • Pattern
  • PIN
  • Password
Recommendation:
For extreme protection select these apps:
  • Play Store (install/remove apps)
  • Xposed Installer (enable/disable modules)
  • Package-Installer (install/remove apks)
  • Settings (Android system settings)
  • ProtectedApps (configure protected apps)
WARNING: Please configure and check ProtectedApps with other apps before!

Coloring:
  • YELLOW: System app, could be started by launcher.
  • YELLOW+BLUE: System app, not straight startable.
  • BLUE: User app, not straight startable.
Donator:
  • No self-promotion in the app.
  • More than 5 apps could be selected.
  • You support this app and further development!
Permissions:
  • DEVICE_ADMIN: Lock device (required)
  • BOOT_COMPLETE: Show persistent notification (optional)
Modules reported not correct working with this app:
  • DS Battery saver
  • Lockscreen disabler

This app does not connect itself to any websites or hosts!

Important:
This app needs the Xposed Framework. The framework requires root access for installation. Don't forget to enable the module in Xposed. You can grab it here: Xposed Installer

Play Store: http://tinyurl.com/lp4fn99
Xposed Repository: http://tinyurl.com/oxdejr9
Changelog: http://tinyurl.com/of6gvex

Why this app? Killing "protection" by long touch on back button could be optimized

Translation:
You could find here a interface to translate the english strings: http://tinyurl.com/okycacj

Great app

Even though it might compromise security, could you add an option to disable locking while in home Wi-Fi net (or BT etc)? Or add a Tasker shortcut to do so?

Thanks a lot!

I think Tasker Support is better, so could many events beused. What about that: PA accept a broadcast, it contains
1) "mode" extra: protect apps, unlock forever and maybe unlock apps for the duration set in settings
2) "password" extra: In the settings could be a password defined and tasker has to add it to the broadcast. So not every app could send a broadcast.

That's not so easy, android does not "closes" apps, it "pauses" them. Eg if you hit HOME button while an app is open it is paused. Therefore is in the menu of PA an "exit" item.
You could get ~~ what you want if you set the oservation method to "create" and the unlocked time to it's minimum (its 30 atm)

Wohoo, that would be cool

Right now i have a tasker event to lock apps when away from home, but it's not a really save option.your method should be more reliable.

Thanks again!
