    Hello, I am getting an app developed that allows businesses to display sales info to their customers on an android tablet. The businesses I deal with will hand out about 20 to 30 tablets at a time to customers and may not be able to monitor each tablet.

    To mitigate theft, I want to be able to lock the tablet from going to the home screen once my app is running. My development team currently does not know how to program this into the app or if it is possible. They will continue research and try to implement for a later phase. In the meantime I was wondering if anyone knew of any apps that performed this function? The ability to password protect the home button is essentially what I am looking for. Basically, any time the home button is clicked, the user will be prompted to enter a password.

    Thanks so much for your help!
