App Locking Idea to Help When Accountability Partner is not Around

I have had a few instances where I was using an app and would find that it had a "back door" internet browser that CE would not be able to monitor. I try to be pretty diligent about blocking those apps, but sometimes it takes a while before I can catch up with my accountability partner to get into my app lock settings. Thus, I think it would be helpful if an update allowed apps to be locked without entering a passcode, but only unlocked if the passcode is entered.

I believe that this would really help as a 1st response rather than hitting the Panic button, because I can't get away with having my internet access blocked for a day or two.

Not sure if this will help. I have had similar problems. The way I deal with this is when I set app locking up I allow my wife to input the passcode. She does not let me have the code. I set app locking so that any new app install requires a the passcode input. In this way if I am tempted to install an inappropriate app I am prevented to do so. If i want to use an app which is okay I just ask my wife to approve it and enable the app with the code. I'm not sure if this helps in your situation. If not it may at least help others.

I saw this right after I posted about a solution I found for this.
