    The only way to do this is to jailbreak and install an app called applocker. The stock iPad does not allow for restrictions of third party apps, only certain native apps and iOS features.

    Hi,

    Thanks for support! Is it not posible to create a folder with many apps and lock the entire folder? Would sound like basic isn't?

    No, it is not possible, for this reason. Unlike the Windows OS that you are familiar with, the iPad is considered to be a single-user device. Apple never intended that multiple users would share one iPad, with different email addresses, photographs, music and apps.

    Share it carefully. If I allow my son and his friends to use my iPad, I force close any apps that I have running, and log out of things like iPF so that they don't have access to stuff they shouldn't. The thought of a mischievous 9-year-old having unrestricted moderator privileges here, when he is supposed to be playing Angry Birds, is quite horrifying.

    As I said, password it so that your personal data is safe, and that's about all you can do.

    Force closing apps is achieved as follows:

    Either double press the home button, or do a four finger swipe up the screen to reveal the multitask bar.

    Long press on any app in the multitask bar until a minus sign appears on the icons.

    Touch the minus sign on the app and it will disappear from the multitask bar. Repeat for all apps.

    Do a four finger swipe down the screen or press the home button once to return the screen to normal.
