  • Just give the permissions, and if you have already set up a fingerprint for your device, you won’t need to set it up again
  • After giving the permissions, it will show you the app list
  • There you’ll see an all apps tab, a locked apps tab, and an unlocked tab
  • From the lock any installed app by turning on the option next to the app name
  • And boom, that particular app is now locked with fingerprint


You’ll also ask to type a PIN to setup as the backup password. You can lock as much app as you want and unlock them by following the same process. The next time you open the App Lock application, it will ask you to unlock with fingerprint or PIN code that you have set before.
