Some apps on your mobile phone contain very private information, some don’t. When you let someone use your phone, but like to restrict their access to certain app on your phone, you can set a lock code to protect those apps. In addition to the screen lock, it adds another level of security to your phone at the same time. Some smartphones, such as Xiaomi, Huawei, Tecno, have included the app locker feature so you don’t need to download a third-party app locker. In this quick guide, we will show you how to lock individual apps on Tecno mobile phones with the Phone Master app which is pre-loaded on Tecno phones. No third-party app lock required.
Lock apps on Tecno phone
Unlock your Tecno device, find and launch the Phone Master app. You can find the App lock from its home screen or the Toolbox.
When you launch the App lock for the first time, you will be prompted to draw an unlock pattern.
Then draw the same pattern again to confirm. After that, you will be taken to the Security question setting where you can choose a security question and type in your answer. This can be used to unlock those protected apps even if your forgot the lock pattern. Finally choose apps on your phone to lock. Just toggle the switch next to the respective app to enable the protection for that app.
From now on, anyone wants to open up a locked app, he/she will need to draw the right pattern first. And you lock private, sensitive data with the pin or code on your Tecno phone to prevent unauthorized access.
