    I own a Moto G3 which is the best phone phone I've ever had. No problems except for the one I'm about to tell you about.

    This is to do with App Locking software's and I've encountered it with AppLocker and CM Secuirty.

    What happens is when I launch an app that is locked it prompts for the code/pattern but if the task manager/recent screens(icon at the lower right) is clicked the screen of the app is shown. How do I disable this?

    This image should help you visualize my problem, hXXp://cdn.ghacks.net/wp-content/uploads/2013/01/android-task-manager.jpg I don't want the screens to show up there. Or say make those screens blank.

    I wouldn't allow CM Security on my phone: a security app, with all the privileges that needs, from a company whose main income stream is monetising the personal data of people who install their apps is not my idea of protecting my privacy.

    As for the actual question, I don't know of a way. The only things I've met that modify that view are some custom ROMs.
