Prevent Android Back button from returning to previous screen

Is there a way so that when the back button (Bottom right on Android) is pressed the app doesn't return to the previous screen? I just want the "Close App" Message to show up.


If I have visited a few screens on the app I have to press the back button multiple times before I can exit the app.

Hi Dan,


No, this cannot be done in PowerApps so far. You could post this idea in the PowerApps Ideas forum, so it might be considered for future releases.

Hi Mona,


Is there a way to add logic for when the user presses the back button on android? Currently the navigate back arrows on my app have logic attach to them so when the user navigates back a page using the back icon button the correct logic will trigger. The issue is if some presses the back button on an android phone they will be navigated back a screen but the logic won't run.
