Lenovo K3 Note applocker issue

2018-01-01, 14:05 PM

I have Lenovo k3 note with Android 6.0 version.

I tried installing different types of applockers, parental control tools. 

the issue I am facing is: whenever I turn on "Ultimate Power Saver (UpS)" and again come back to normal mode the applocker/parental tool dosent restart and hence all the locked apps become accessible.

I think it(UpS) is stopping the app or disabling "usage access" of the applocker. Now to resolve issue I could come up with following solutions:

1. find out how to restart applocker after we switch from UpS mode to normal mode.

2. remove UpS icon from Notification Bar Icons(NBI) drop down list. (so that it can not be accessed to disable applocker)

3. apply the lock to NBI settings. (applocker can apply lock to "settings" but not to NBI settings which are easily available in Top Right Corner of NBI drop down list (photo attahched)

 

 

how to do any one of the above? (any different solution is also welcome)

Hi, Suyog_Hacker.

 

This is a default, however, you can go to settings> security>apps with user access>turn the app locker - to turn it back on.

 

Could you also name a few apps that you are using for app locker?

 

Thanks,

Swaraj

I want to lock it for a person who already knows this way of bypassing security.

I want applocker to be foolproof.
I tried following apps and understood that this behavior is independent of applocker.

App Locker | Best AppLock by burakgon Productivity
Norton App Lock by NortonMobile Tools

ESET Parental Control by ESET Tools
Kids Place - Parental Control  by kiddoware Entertainment
Parental Control Light by NetSpark Tools
 
Is there any way to
1. permanently remove "Ultimate Power Saver" from "Notification Bar Icons" or
2. remove "Notification Bar Settings" button from drop down list or
3.set lock to "Notification Bar Settings" button?

Hello Moto_Swaraj

 

Is there any plan to further update Super Power Mode on the K3 note? We also noticed App Usage does not resume itself after Super Power Mode is disabled. App usage resumes itself on other manufacturers such as Samsung, Google, Xiaomi, etc so we are hopeful this can be resolved as well.
