how do I lock or password an app on my blackberry torch 9800

On my home screen at the very top is the app that has internet, wi-fi, and bluetooth options. Some how I keep turning off my internet. So can it b password protected or locked or even moved from the home screen?

You're letting your cursor move to the top then your trackpad is being pressed without your knowledge (perhaps while in your pocket).  Atleast, that's what it sounds like.


Try locking your phone.  As soon as you press the lock button, your screen shuts off and the trackpad cannot be activated. 


To lock your phone, press the top of the phone on the left side (there's a faint lock symbol).  When you're ready to use your phone once again, just press the button again.
