FingerPrint scanner is a topnotch security invention that has taken over the former security codes on recent smartphones from Infinix, Gionee, Apple, Samsung and Lenovo. Lenovo is one company that has always ensured its new products are well equipped with the fingerprint security feature. With the recent upgrades, Lenovo has ensured recent phones are equipped with not just a locking funactiobality, but also the ability to download third-party applications from google play store and install same. This app locking functionality is common with Lenovo devices like K5 Power, K6 Note
While the app lock works as intended, Lenovo has buried the option deep inside the Settings menu which means that most users are likely never going to know about its existence until they know where to look. If you are in the same boat then follow the steps below to know how to lock apps using the fingerprint scanner on your Lenovo K6 Power and K6 Note.
Note: Before you proceed with the steps below, make sure that you have already registered your fingerprints and set up fingerprint lock/unlock on the handsets.
Step 1: On your Lenovo K6 Power or K6 Note, head over to Settings -> Security. Scroll down to the very bottom of the list where you will find Application Lock.
Step 2: You will be prompted to enter your PIN/Password after which a list of all the apps installed on your phone will be displayed. Simply toggle the switch to on for the apps that you want to protect using the fingerprint scanner.
Step 3: If you do not want to use the fingerprint scanner to unlock apps, you can do so by tapping the 3-dot overflow menu button, selecting Settings and disable the Enable fingerprint toggle. From the same menu, you can also set whether you want the locked application prompt to come up every time you launch the application or only after the screen turns off.
