    Is there a way to lock the app drawer?
    I setup a profile for the kids, and don't want them to access this.

    If you download a custom launcher you could either...

    A. Remove the App Drawer entirely from that profile

    OR

    B. Hide certain apps so they don't show up even if the app drawer is pressed

    Here is the link for the Launcher: Nova Launcher Prime

    I've never tried it but you might look into Hide It Pro. It won't lock the app tray but you can hide apps.

    Not sure if the stock launcher will let you do it, but with Apex (and probably other launchers) you could just drag the app tray shortcut to the trashcan so they can't use it. Or hide the dockbar completely and put shortcuts on the homescreen.
