    Lock and unlock settings
    Hi. Other than preventing a person from changing a locked setting without a password, is there an advantage to leaving settings locked? In other words, does a locked setting also prevent an automated, perhaps malicious, process from changing the setting?

    I think it would. I'm not sure though.
