App Lock conflates two apps with same name

Norton App Lock conflates two apps if they happen to have the same name.

In my case, I have Google Authenticator and Microsoft Authenticator. They both have the short name "Authenticator" on the phone.

If I ask Norton App Lock to lock just the one, it locks both of them. That's merely inconvenient.

If I ask Norton App Lock to lock both of them, and I unlock just the one, opting to not "Keep app locked in session", it unlocks both of them. That's a security vulnerability.

See the screenshot, where both Authenticators are listed in the Norton App Lock.

Please would you find a way to identify the specific app being locked in the case where two or more apps with the same name.

More information: Android 8.0.0

Interesting find. I'll pass this along to my Norton Contacts.

Thanks for the info.
