How To Setup App Lock Using The Face ID Feature

So still on the Face ID thing, as y’all already know, apart from using the Face ID to wake and unlock your device from sleep, you can as well use it to add an extra layer of security to your device, by using it to lock your apps on your phone.. So automatically, your face becomes a password to your apps. Now how do we set it up?

So still inside the Face ID app, there is an option in there labelled as “Access App Lock“, by default it is turned off, so make sure to turn it on by tapping on the toggle just once.

Now we are done using the Face ID app. So right now, you will want to go to your home screen or phone’s app drawer (whichever one is easiest for you), and locate another app called the “Phone Master“.

So tap to open it, and you will be given a list of options to manage and optimize your phone’s performance. Just ignore all those shits and locate an icon labeled as “Toolbox

Select Toolbox

Once again, tap to open toolbox, and you will be given more options for you to optimize your apps. Once again, ignore all of them, but just select the one labeled as “App Lock

Select App Lock

So when you tap on app lock, it doesn’t just open like every other apps you’ve been opening before. Instead you’re asked to first verify your identity using your Face ID, or enter that pin that i asked you to create above. So just do that pretty quick.. and we are good to go.

So tap on the padlock icon for any app you wish to lock, and secondly locked apps automatically show up at the top of every other apps. Like this.
