I've tried various AppLock apps on Google Play in the hope of preventing unauthorized access to various applications, such as Settings and Googe Play, but they can all be bypassed using popup view and split screen.

I strongly think that popup view and split screen are major security loopholes.

Does anyone know how to disable popup view and split screen, or is there any truly working method/Apps to lock apps on the phone?

I'm not sure you can.
It's all part of the Google Android operating system.
What are you referring to with unauthorised access?

I know Google takes security very seriously, and if those had been deemed a security risk. I'm sure they wouldn't implement those features

Idk what you are talking about too.
But relax, go to settings and search Split. See if that works

I've been struggling with this too. Remove all the fancy gestures for popup view / multiwindows in settings.

This will leave the touch and hold gesture as the default gesture that you can't delete.

However, you can go to settings > accessibility > interactivity and dexterity > and then go to the setting that lets you change the time that a "touch and hold" registers as a "touch and hold". You can set it to something unreasonably long if you like. On top of this, the Digital Detox app prevents popup view, however it takes a few seconds to kick in. Changing the "touch and hold" setting as I've described above makes sure that the Digital Detox app has time to kick in so you cannot access popup view. Good luck!
