Security Apps

    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.

    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. :eek:

    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.
