Android Q will kill third party 'App Locker' apps

#1

Third party App locker (such as mine AppLock https://f-droid.org/app/io.github.subhamtyagi.privacyapplock) may not be work in Android Q.

As ‘App locker’ apps run a service in background(Foreground service in Oreo) and starts a foreground activity (i.e. lock screen) whenever a locked apps opened. but as proposed in Android Q background service can’t start a foreground services ( https://developer.android.com/preview/privacy/background-activity-starts).

Note:Stock Android doesn’t a privacy App lock as most of stock ROM have inbuilt app lock

One of my Apps is affected by this too. I’m currently thinking about using the “draw over other Apps” permission as workaround

Looks like Q has a bunch of new restrictions :-/
