Android AppRestrictions Sample

A sample that demonstrates the use of the App Restriction feature on devices with multiuser support


This sample demonstrates the use of the App Restriction feature, which is available on Android 4.3 and above tablet device with the multiuser feature.

When launched under the primary User account, you can toggle between standard app restriction types and custom. When launched under a restricted profile, this activity displays app restriction settings, if available.

This sample app maintains custom app restriction settings in shared preferences. When the activity is invoked (from Settings > Users), the stored settings are used to initialize the custom configuration on the user interface. Three sample RestrictionEntry types are shown: checkbox, single-choice, and multi-choice. When the settings are modified by the user, the corresponding restriction entries are saved, which are retrievable under a restricted profile through the UserManager.


  • Android SDK 28
  • Android Build Tools v28.0.3
  • Android Support Repository
