    Hello, I wanted to know if there is a way to prevent an app from being opened for example Facebook, or other apps like twitter or youtube that should not be used during working hours? assuming this apps are already installed. Thanks in advance.

    I think there is no way to prevent an app for being opened.

    Maybe you can setup the apps itself? Try to go to menu, than app settings, and try to turn something off, connected to launching automatically.

    Your question is not very clear. Do you want to prevent anyone from opening the app on their mobile or simply your own phone. If you want to prevent them from receiving messages etc then simply turn off your wifi or mobile data option to prevent them from disturbing you in the office.

    As Magatsu said, it depends on what you really want. You can easily turn off notifications, even for specific amount of time, but I assume you already know that. Then, if you don't want an app to be opened for a long period of time, you can actually remove it and then download it again. For example, I learn languages at a platform called AmazingTalker, but I don't want to use it when I'm at work because there is a lot of messaging with tutors. Thus, I just uninstall it when I'm at the office and then install it again in the weekends, when I use it.

    Yes, you can do this while enrolling a device with an MDM solution. Application whitelisting or whitelisting can help significantly in ensuring that your employees are not distracted, the enterprise devices are not misused and the data costs are always under check.
    With MDM software, IT administrators can create comprehensive device policies that define which apps are to be allowed and which are to be blocked. While defining the policies for enterprise devices, IT admins can whitelist apps on Android as well as iOS devices with ease. While kiosk software can help to whitelist or blacklist applications on Android and iOS devices
