Norton AppLock does not reset PINentered status when unlocking the device
I have Norton AppLocker installed on fresh Android 8.1 Oreo running on Samsung Galaxy Tab S4.
The app works just fine except one bug which ruins all idea of Apps locking and render the app useless.
The bug manifests itself in not resetting the PINentered flag (for all-session mode) for the app itself, after unlocking the device.
Suppose that user installed and correctly configured Norton Applock and enabled the protection for the listed apps. The apps are protected indeed, once the service is enabled. But if the Norton app is closed after enabling, and the device is locked down, and then unlocked, the app's PINentered flag is not reset (it does for every of the listed apps but not the Norton app itself).
Thus, another user can just open the Norton AppLocker and it will not demand entering graphical PIN on open. Thus, the intruder can easily disable all the protection with no question asked, and thus access all the "protected apps".
Now, why anybody needs protection which may be disabled with no efforts at all?
Note: if the NortonApp is open at the moment of locking down the device, then the flag is reset and the first thing user can see on unlocking the device is PIN enter request for the Norton AppLock app. But this is typically not the case as the Norton app is usually kept closed after some adjustments are made.
