    I have several apps for my toddler to use and he loves them. However, he has now figured out a few distressing things, like how to go into edit mode (moving & deleting apps). I have a passcode on the phone itself, and I've figured out that if I turn off cellular connections (assuming I'm connected via wifi) he can't make phone calls or send text messages. That protects a lot, but there are some gaps.

    My question...is there a way (via setting or an installed app) that I can put certain apps into a folder and password lock that folder? That way, he can't get to any app where he could cause problems by playing with it or deleting it.

    I know about Guided Access BTW, but I think that limits him to one app right? If I could open a folder and then set GA there, that would be perfect as well.

    You can turn on parental restrictions to not allow deleting of apps. You'll have to turn it off when you want to delete apps
