Hello, hoping someone can help me please?

I have bough a Samsung Galaxy J5 for my son and wish to lock certain apps, i have downloaded several that work fine however if you go into the menu, on the top right corner it say edit. As soon as you hit it it allows you to uninstall any apps you like including the app lockers.

Can anyone advise on how i do this please.

Thank you

There are some app lockers that allow you to impose a password once you put an app in the app locker, you should use one that has to be installed as a device administrator, not giving any certain app a plug but I have found that CM (clean master security and app locker not the Clean master app killer or speeds booster and Norton both have some really good options for this). The only way you can get around opening an app once placed in it's control is to know the security password /pin code. You can't get to the settings menus once you set the pin code. Hope this helps...
