Fingerprint scanner are very convenient and once you got used to it, the old-fashioned pattern and pin lock feels annoying. While all the phones that comes with finger print scanner allows you to unlock the phone, some phones adds more features to the technology and make it more productive. Huawei has added many layers of finger print features to the technology one amongst it is the app lock. A practical and useful feature to lock your apps from prying eyes.
Unlike in CoolPad Note 3 and Note 3 Lite, where there was a separate FP lock app to setup the app lock, the app lock process is hidden one layer inside another app – Phone manager app. Here is a 3 step quick guide to set up the app lock in Honor 5X.
Go to Settings > FingerPrint ID > Finger Print management and make sure you have registered at least one finger print with the device.

You can find a Phone manager app on the home screen. Tap on that and slide to the left and you will find a feature ‘App Lock’. Click that and it will list all the apps in the device. Choose the apps which you want to secure with the fingerprint.
Now the selected apps are secured and protected by the finger print associated with the phone.
