Did you know that you can lock apps using TouchID on iPhone? It’s easy to set up, and it adds an extra layer of protection for your device. The tool that helps you enable TouchID lock for apps is called BioProtect, and you can download it for $2.99.
This method only works on devices that have TouchID. It protects a vast array of things on your smartphone, including files, settings, folders, Control Center items and apps.
How To Lock Your Apps With BioProtect
Here is how to set up the app on your iPhone:
- Download the BioProtect tool.
- Use TouchID to open it, as it is already locked. For devices tat do not have TouchID, it will require a passcode.
- In the Global Settings of BioProtect, you will see a selection of apps, folders and more that can be locked. Select the ones you want to lock.
That’s it. now when you open an app or folder, the device will scan your fingerprint, and the app or folder won’t open if the fingerprint does not match.
