Convenient Use Cases
Touch Protector is a simple app that disables touch screen and physical button operations, but it has many useful uses.
- When walking while looking at a map app, the map does not shift even if you touch the screen.
- Walking with the music video playing in your pocket.
- Locking the camera during video recording allows you to enjoy various camera work without worrying about accidental operation.
- When using your phone as a navigation system for motorcycles, you can prevent accidental operation due to raindrops.
- When tracing a displayed image, you can lock it and place a piece of paper on it.
- When you show a photo to someone, you can lock it and give it to them to prevent them from seeing the other photos.
- etc.
If you have other interesting ways to use it, I would appreciate it if you could write them in the comments.

Restrictions for Android 8 and later
Due to additional restrictions in Android OS 8 or later, Touch Protector can no longer disable the notification bar (top edge of the screen) and navigation bar (bottom edge of the screen). Therefore, Touch Protector will close the notification bar and navigation bar as soon as they are displayed to reduce accidental operation.

Works as advertised. The notification bar limitation is a problem for me. I use the phone on my bicycle for GPS navigation. When it rains, the water drips down from the top of the screen, which of course behaves like a pull down, activating the notifications - which Touch Protector can't block - and the phone goes nuts! Thanks, Google! Thinking about a physical solution, but haven't come up with one yet.

I love this app. After an issue with my phone, that I unjustly accused the app of, Touch Protector is back to being my number one app on my phone next to youtube music. This app stops accidental touches from causing apps to open/close. You can activate via a button in notifications tab, by shaking your phone, by proximity to the hole at the top of the screen(not sure about that one), or by holding your phone upside down- like when walking. I love it, and highly recommend it.

I was having an issue with my Galaxy S10 plus that it was randomly calling people, texting, taking screenshots, and opening apps while I was walking with it in my pocket. At first I tried changing the settings on the phone, then I tried several cases, even some with a screen protector to see if it would stop the issue but nothing worked. I came across this app and problem solved. Great app.
