Default Hidden or invisible apps

I am using Lookout as my security app. I had to uninstall it today and reinstall and found it was TOO easy to uninstall. What will prevent a thief to unistall it?

Is there a way to make this app invisible or hidden in the application menu?

WaveSecure had a feature where a second app was installed that was invisible and prevented the application to be uninstalled....to access the app one had to type in their security code.

any suggestions would be appreciated.

Try an app called Hide It Pro. I think it can do what you want to do.

That is the only reason that I prefer Avast over Lookout. It has the hide feature, and the sign in feature.

Try Transparent Launcher Premium. It will let you make any app icon 100% invisible to all. You need to remember where they are or go to the launcher widget or icon and adjust the transparency enough for you to start seeing it (them) again.
