    Hi, i have a Samsung Galaxy S2 and I find out that if someone has access to my phone (unblocked) they can read my whatsapp messages by putting the widget on the screen. So, is there a way to disable them? I dont want or use a single one of them :oops: I found an application called "Lockscreen Policy" that does that, but it doesn't work on my android version (4.1.2).

    Can anyone help me?

    I have it locked with AppLock but people can still read your messages with that widgets trick! :(

    Isn't there a way to disable widgets?

    Just enable Power saving mode in AppLock. Try it and keep me updated.

    Simply long press on the widget and delete it from the screen
