    I installed Smart Applock (free) on my Droid 3, but I've discovered that it can be quit in the Task Manager. The Play Store page for the paid version doesn't mention if it's protected itself. Is there a suggestion of an app that password protects other apps' use and also is protected against being just dumped, rendering it basically useless?

    Thanks.

    I use Smart App Protector by Sputnik...I have the paid version and there is not a setting to avoid the task manager but can you remove it from your task manager so that it is not affected?

    In Task Manager, long-press gives me: End Application, Add to Auto-end List, and Uninstall. Can you tell me how to remove an app from TM?

    Does it give you an option to uncheck in your list of apps...I do not use a Task Manager (stock or 3rd party) so I am not sure.

    I will post up a screenshot of some info from the smart app protector app I am using...

    I see that your picture has a note about the app restarting when it is force-closed, using the Helper program. That reminds me that this one had a Helper, too. I'll try to find that and see if it works like yours does. I can try Smart App Protector, too. The settings for TM didn't have anything relating to not including an app, and anyway, that would need to be protected, too.
