My phone has a pattern lock and I want friends to be able to unlock it with the pattern, however, I do not want them to have access to my gmail. Is there a way that I can force gmail to ask for the password every time I/someone try to open it?

I've read that the password tokens are an intrinsic part of the Android OS, is there any way I could do such a thing without losing the notifications of new e-mail?



You could use an app locker like Smart App Protector. This will protect your installed applications using a password or pattern.

  • I haven't tried it yet but I'm pretty sure this would solve my issue.. Thanks!

You can log out of your gmail and facebook accounts with the logout! app:
