Question Q10 password lock and hiding icons and apps

Please Login to Remove!

Hello. I love BB phones and I will use them forever. However I am incredibly dissapointed that on Q10 we can not lock any desired app, or hide icon, like we could in previous OS's, using iLock app for example.... That app is available for q10 aswell but it allows locking of only files, not applications like FB, twitter , let alone locking HUB app from preventing anyone to access them... I tend to borrrow my phone to those in need but why couldnt I have option to have anyone prevent to enter my hub or sms messages of FB accounts..... Please dont give me stupid answers like "dont borrow your phone to those who would look your email" or such........
Questions:
1: does anyone know will people from BB allow developers to make this kind of app with control to pass locking desired app?
2: will BB Passport model use same OS10( with this unfortunate issue)
3: is it possible to custom make/order change in BB OS so you can use app to control with pass any icon you desire(like on bold ,odels)
I know 3rd question is SF, but who knows, maybe it can be done and I would gladly pay for it...
I thing this is huge hole in BB security, phone known for its wide range of options suddenly lost for many of us important one...
Thanks, BB users!!!

Forgot to add that Whole HUB app should be available for us to password lock it.... And within it to choose which accounts to be password locked....its huge hole in security and simply locking your phone doesnt solve this issue....if you share or lend phone to someone...

You should probably ask on the official BlackBerry support site at Device Support Forums - BlackBerry Support Community Forums

Good luck with your development!

Since you told us not to give you "stupid" answers, here is the long and short of it.

1. No.
2. Yes.
3. No.

I let people use my spare phone on wifi, they don't get to use my personal one.
