Hide Apps on Top Row

Last Modified: 2019-05-05
There is a top row above the complete list of Android apps on my Nexus 6 Android phone.

it seems to show the apps that are most often used using 4 icons along the top.

I would prefer to not have this show up?

is it possible to hide that row all together?

As an alternative to hiding the row all together, I would also like to know if there is a way to require a specific PIN code in order to pull up the list of apps to begin with?

I know you can do this on a per app basis, but I may need to be able to do it with the screen itself.
