    I'd just enable Guest Mode for your other family members when they need to use your phone. It's already integral to Android so you don't need to install anything.

    Your user account is left as is, along with all the customizations you made to its appearance. The Guest account is isolated from your primary user account so whatever they do won't be able to accidentally change how icons or screens are arranged or delete your files/folders.

    nova has an advanced feature where you can lock your home screen layout where you can't move the icons around. you can only launch the apps that are on the home screen.

    go into nova settings>scroll down to advanced>toggle lock layout to on.
