App Lock for Android issue

Just noticed this now, but if I go to my app settings and select App Lock, it immediately shows the pattern unlock page. If I press the home button, the recent apps button and select app settings, the settings page for App Lock is automatically unlocked, allowing me to Force Stop App Lock, giving me full access to all my apps. I guess my question is, what should be done to prevent this from happening? Samsung Galaxy Note 4 SM-N910W8 6.0.1.

In the App Lock app itself, look down the list of apps to block. Look for Settings. That will require the app lock pass code to be able to change anything in the Android settings. This protects all aspects of the Android settings, including the ability to reset the device.
