AppLock protect fingerprint any Android-app – BBC News

In Google Play, a new utility AppLock, which allows you to protect any Android-app from unauthorized access by requesting a fingerprint device holder. The only requirement of the program – the existence of a biometric sensor Nexus Imprint, which yet are equipped with only two Android-smartphone, Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P.

AppLock very simple. After you install and enable the utility, users can scroll through a list of all installed on Android-device program and mark the ones that should be protected by fingerprint. For example, if you are selected Facebook and Instagram, the next time you run these applications AppLock require to apply finger sensor to get access to them.

Also, the utility allows you to temporarily unlock a certain period of time (function Temporarily unlock) to imprint not ask every time you open the program. The main drawback AppLock – annoying banner that appears at the bottom of the screen. In this turn it can not even for money, because the built-in in-app purchases are missing.

The first device with Nexus Imprint – Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P – out in October last year. These models fingerprint sensor is located in the center of the back cover, under the camera. It is easy to feel his index finger, and it looks almost like the Touch ID to the “iPhone”.
