It would be nice to be able to lock apps via fingerprint or code. Will anyone else like that feature embedded into the software?

We do have the Secure Folder, but that ends up with us having two separate applications... using double the storage.

Samsung should have an official app-lock. I'd use it!

You don't have to keep 2 copies of apps. You can sign into a separate Google account inside the folder and use the play store to obtain apps or copy them into the folder and delete the copy outside the folder.

Yea, I agree Secure Folder is the proper option. Why?

If I have three "locked" apps, I'll have to swipe or fingerprint three different times for each app. (I already have to unlock my screen to do anything with my phone)

I can also hide Secure Folder, for additional security.

You can install apps *only* to Secure Folder if you wish, that way, there's not a second copy of the app in the "unsecure" Home or App areas.

I'm aware, I'm suggesting we not have to use double the applications tho. Thanks for suggesting. 😎
