I have started using CM Security on my new phone which runs Android 6.0. I use the Applock feature, but the problem is it doesn't work because... just as I kill the window from my recent apps, CM Security also stops running in the background and as a result the password protection doesn't work.

So I was looking for a way to keep the app always running on the background.

P.S: My phone is not rooted.

    If I may go off-topic... uninstall CM Security presto. I was one of their moderators and core members, and I myself resigned. That app will only spam you with ads whilst grabbing data and possibly uploading it.

  • thanks for your suggestion, I've been using DoMobile Applock, but when that stopped working, I tried CM Jul 25 '16 at 6:08

The app Wake Lock Revamp - Power Manager helps to keep apps running in the background.

  • It would help if you provide instructions to use this app.

Simply try another security software like Avast, AVG. For example I have system (KitKat) with built in deamon App Permission Manager so it's never stop.

  • Ok, I'll try that and see if it helps Jul 25 '16 at 6:07
