    Hi Guys
    I am Using Fingerprint App Lock Application to Lock apps in Oneplus 3
    I don't want that Particular App to get cleared after Clicking Broom Icon (All Clear) From Recents App
    Any Way To Whitelist That App? So It Can't Get Cleared

    There is a lock icon next to the X on each app... lock apps to prevent them from being cleared by the broom :)

    Press the lock icon to unlock it if you want that. If you want to hide it, well I do not know. :)

    Ugh, this is so simple and I somehow never noticed the lock feature until now. Thanks for the info.

    Pretty sure thats impossible. If you can hide it from the recents, thats suspicious behaviour! I imagine there is probably some way to turn the app into a system app and make it a core service or something that does not show up there, but nothing that is easy that I know of, and definitely not something that people will like, because it means you can also squeeze malware into the phone that can hide and monitor stuff and so on ... security risk!

    This does not affect the broom! The broom kills all processes I believe .

    yes this seems to a bug...clicking the broom icon makes all the apps accessible even thought it is locked by some third party app locks...what the point of it if there is no option to white-list the third party app locker..privacy issue in oxygen OS..need to be fixed as soon as possible

    use the lock icon in the recent apps list. The selection sticks after groom and reboot

    Thanks for this. Im using the same transparent clock and weather widget and noticed the clock not updating . Searched the help in the app and read about the whitelist, which led to here.
