User reviews of Secure Settings
I use this together with Tasker, and it works great for extending the functionality of Tasker. Definitely worth getting if you want to do any of the things it says it can do.

Unable to toggle GPS I am trying to use tasker to toggle GPS. Tasker popped up a message telling me I needed to install this app (Secure Settings). So I installed the Secure Settings Pro app, enabled the 'System+ Module' and also went to Preferences and enabled 'Device Administrator'. In Secure Settings under 'Options',> 'System+ Actions' the GPS is green with a check mark next to it. But when I go to run my tasker task to toggle GPS nothing happens. My device (SM-T217T) is rooted, I am running Android version 4.2.2

Still amazing Easy to use, works every time. I can now manipulate GPS, among a million other things, just like the good old days.

So frustrating... The app is great, the idea is great, BUT I have been using this app for a week or so, and today after I set fly mode to make the charging faster, I haven´t been able to unlock my phone again. It´s locked, and I´m stuck on that screen. Every time I turn on the phone, I get a notification saying "Device admin is inactive. Click to enable", which I can´t do because is LOCKED and it lost its admin rights magically!! Now I guess I can´t do anything else than try to reset to fabric my phone, if it allows me to do it remotely... (I´m using it with tasker, of course)

Works great for couple Tasker Profiles I wanted to do. It worked great for what I originally bought it for! But warning if you want to do more it isn't developers fault. Google made it so you have to root your phone if you want to turn GPS mode off/on/manipulate. But actually do need GPS on for one task I used Tasker for. Still would have been great to do more, but like I said most of the stuff is disabled unless you want to root phone. I used it for Failed Login Attempts and rotating my Login Pin through out the day and unlock on home WiFi.
