Wondering if there is an app that manages security of particular apps.
My kids have iPads and we'd like to be able to put security codes on certain apps that I don't want them opening.

I know there are apps to secure photos.

TIA

You can't really lock single apps. Program like you mentioned to hide images or other files are working in their own sandbox/ filesystem location only. If you want to remove stock apps like safari you can use parental control in system settings. That's what I did for the iPad of my son. No safari, no AppStore or in-app purchasing. But the rest is open.

Other stock apps I "hide" in a folder on a screen far to the right. He's not going there. :o

I think there isn't any app for your requirements. I am using 1Password app for data security.

Thanks all. Didn't think there was one for iPhone but there's one for android so thought I'd check.
