Disable HOME KEY in android

In order to disable the home button or the home key on your android device you can use the following piece of code.


public void onAttachedToWindow()


public boolean onKeyDown(int keyCode, KeyEvent event) {
if (keyCode == KeyEvent.KEYCODE_HOME) {
 return true;
return super.onKeyDown(keyCode, event);


This disables the home button.


Hope it helps some one!!
