My android device is rooted.

Like other android devices, there are many sections in Settings Menu like

  1. Wireless & Networks

  2. Device

  3. Personal

  4. Accounts

  5. Systems

And in all above sections, there are sub-sections also like following..

In Wireless & Networks; there are SIM Management, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Data Usage and More settings …

I would like to lock some sections and some sub-sections of Setting Menu.

Is it possible to lock Setting Menu in section-wise or subsection-wise?

Please let me know, how to do it?

I don't think you can lock sections of settings, but you can lock whole settings with app like "App locker" and others like that

  • I am already using this app, App Locker but I am concerned with sections of settings.

  • As per many experts, after rooting an android device, an end user has completer privilege for android device. However, its really an unfortunate that I can't lock Setting Menu in section-wise or subsection-wise. I am already using App Locker.

it all depends on the ROM you've installed. For a primary user (on any ROM) you can't lock any setting like you intend to do.

But on some ROMs like MIUI, you can create a second user, where some settings like Mobile Data, SIM Card Management, Lock Screen Settings are locked and available only for the first user. I dont know about other other ROMs but MIUI does provide an option like that
