Note 9: How To Lock Apps

If you’re feeling safe and secure by simply using a password for your lock screen, that’s fine. But if you feel the need for extra security measures on your Note 9, you might want to start thinking about different, customized passwords. How would you like to have individual passwords for specific apps, the apps that you are most afraid of getting into the wrong hands?

You might have heard about the option to create a folder and keep it invisible, but that’s for storing images, videos and other files.
