App Lock bypass to Google Play Store
I use Norton App Lock as a parental control on my kid’s device: I’ve set almost every app to be locked. That „protected list“ includes Google Play Store App to prevent kid from installing applications.
I was really surprised, he managed to bypass the guard and installed couple of games. At first I thought he must had observed the pattern but that was not the case:
Occasionally Norton App Lock shows add for another Norton apps at the lock screen. When touched, Google Play Store is being opened. Typically that application start is immediately locked by Norton App Lock because of the „protected list“. Unfortunately there must be some issue with accessing the Play Store via the advertisement because after a while of ad hoc touching the ad banner/entries of the three dots menu/drawing invalid patterns it lets me freely to the Play Store app.
I admit this description provides very poor repro but it unfortunately works on the Samsung S3 mini, Android 4.1.2
