    To the best of my knowledge, there is no way to lock apps outside of jailbreaking. There are apps that have a built-in lock mechanism like Dropbox, Evernote, Documents 5 by Readdle and DataVAult, to name a few. Anyway, as has already been suggested, a passcode lock for your device is your best bet.

    Assuming that you are a minor, your parents have every right to see what's on your phone. Don't download, post, text, etc anything you don't want them to see.

    Even if there was away, do think they would let you keep the phone after you put a lock on it to keep them out.

    What an ******* kind of a reply.
    Every person has a private life in which no one else is supposed to put an eye not even his/her parents.

    You should better jailbreak your device for locking your social applications.

    1. The post you replied to is 2 years old.
    2. The reply she gave was a darn good one and made sense, especially to those of us who are parents. I'm one of those parents who have told my kids, that as long as they are in my house and being cared for by me, they don't have exclusive privacy. Lock the door on me and I'll remove the door altogether. Yeah, I'm one of those parents...
    3. Your Jailbreaking response is a good one. Thank you.
