    I 'm actually programming an Android launcher for children. I've successed to create a database and only show app I have authorized. The problem is in Navigation bar when you swipe down, you can acess to the setting app ( see picture below).


    Is there is a way to override this button ? Or maybe to filter every packages sent from my launcher and check if there are authorized. I've tried Services, Broadcast receiver, onUserInteraction().

    Can you please help me ?

    So I've managed to find a solution.

    I've created an Async task that check what app is in foreground.

    If I don't want user to get on this app, I will send it to back to my launcher main screen.
