Need help please


I am using an iPad mini 2 and I was wondering if it is possible to have the camera run if I have a screen lock to get into my apps or do I have to leave the app open. If I lock my device it is currently wide open for anyone to get into my private apps. So if you could let me know whether or not it is possible to lock my screen while using the camera so that it is not having to be unlocked in order for me to see footage on my camera device. I have a nosy girlfriend that I do not want having access to my other apps. Thank you.


Hi @jkrugen,

Thank you for reaching out to Alfred!

To lock your iOS device, we suggest you to try the Guided Access feature! Please check the tutorial here:

Hope it helps!


I am having issues with wanting to keep my tablet locked while using the app. Rite now no apps cancel it out it just when I go to set up the tablet for use it has a unlock function but once someone unlocks that by simply touching the screen they have full access to my personal apps and anything else they would take
