Block Your Children from Seeing Your Private Data with Xposed

How many times has someone tried to read your SMS or view your private photos? If you have a child and want to allow him or her to play some games on your phone without giving access to all your personal data, we have something that might interest you.

A new Xposed module written by XDA Senior Member WasseemB allows you to select up to three applications that your children can access (or eight in the paid version). All other applications are locked and require a PIN code. The module disables the recent apps button and the status bar, so it’s quite difficult to unlock the device without knowing the password. Pressing the home button returns to the application the select screen. Since this is an Xposed module, your device must be rooted and have Xposed Framework installed.

If your partner or children are too interested in your private data, make your way to the module thread and give WasseemB’s module a try.

Find The Best Apps With Google’s Picks & Other Tricks

The Google Play Store, weighing in with more than 1.4 million apps at last count, is a vast expanse of quality content and APK duds alike. To put this into context, it would take the average user more than 8 days of continuous scrolling to make it through the whole list at two per second, let alone the added months to click through and check out screenshots, or years to separate the wheat from the chaff via thorough review.
