SecureLauncher is a simple app that can be regarded as a simplified version of Parental Controls. With this app, you can prevent sensitive applications from being opened, by requiring a password in order to run them. By default, all applications need a password to be run. As you start using SecureLauncher, you can whitelist certain applications so that you do not have to type the password every time.
This app is for users who do not want to or cannot enable Parental Controls for their account. SecureLauncher installs runs without requiring any special root privileges. Once you launch it, you will see a lock icon on top of your status bar. From there, you can edit the whitelist, change the password, activate, deactivate SecureLauncher, as well as send an email to Support or view the help window.
I am dedicated to this app and will be adding features based on user feedback. Also, the blog is barebones – I don’t even have a domain for it. But once people start using the app, I promise I will make it better!
