    Hello.

    I'd like to create an admin account in Android devices, so the end user has limited privileges.
    I don't want them to be able to uninstall certain applications, neither disable some functions (GPS,etc...)

    Something similar to an admin user on Windows or Linux "root".

    ¿Does this exist in Android?

    Thanks!

    I didn't know about that feature. I'll look for it. No. I'm trying to administrate a corporate set of cellphones.

    Thanks!

    Android doesn't have that same kind of multiple user account functionality like with a computer OS but it does include Parental controls that allow you to set up a 'kinda/sorta' restricted account:

    But as this sounds like a work or school scenario, maybe implementing Google's G Suite would be something that's more suitable?
