Your PC product has a password protection option for settings.
Your android product does not.
Android phones are pretty easy to get into due to the grease from fingers can be seen on the display and the code/pattern quickly guessed.

Thank you for the suggestion but we do not have any plans to password protect settings in the Android app. The Android environment and our app serve to prevent malware from changing settings If the phone is lost or stolen then you could lock it, wipe it or locate it. A lock would prevent tampering. For the case where you leave your device unattended and someone (for some reason) decides to disable your settings, then the app will provide an indication of this in the device status bar and the app UI itself will be in the yellow Warning state. We believe these measures are sufficient.
