    Hello
    I looked far and wide for a lock screen that had the following functionality but couldn't find any. I would like to have a lock screen that will only ask me for a password when I click certain apps that I want to be secure. But once I enter the password it will not ask me again for the remainder of the session that is till I switch off the screen. I have a screen lock that will ask me for a password even though I have entered it earlier in the session.

    Sounds to me like you are looking for something I have never seen. The function of a lock screen is to lock the device, not individual applications.

    You might want to look at an app like SmartAppLock, which allows you to secure individual apps. AppLock is another highly rated one.

    Are those something of interest?

    I have used AppLock and right now I have SmartAppLock. Both of them don't have the funtionality where if I enter the password once then it remembers it for the entire session

    Have you looked at the settings within the two applications? There should be some kind of adjustable period of time before lock reactivates. I have not used either so I have no personal knowledge.

    I don't think you will find anything that will not unlock for your entire session as that would kind of defeat the general purpose of a locking app. For example, if you forget to close the app, in theory it would never close or lock.

    Not sure if anything like what you describe is made....
