  • Before locking the application, you must first provide security for your Xiaomi Smartphone.
  • To activate it, please find and select the "Password and security" menu.
  • To lock the screen, please press “Lock screen”.
  • You can also use a fingerprint scanner or facial recognition to unlock your Smartphone. This method is the most practical method than the other methods.
  • You can choose a lock method for your Xiaomi Smartphone, starting from pattern, PIN or password.
  • To be more secure, PIN and Password can be your best choice. You can make any combination to make it hard to guess, but easy to remember. Because, if you forget, you have to delete all HP data, including photos, contacts, and so on to create a new password.

2. Step Two, Activate Application Lock (App Lock)

  • After successfully locking your Xiaomi Smartphone, do the following steps:
  • Please return to the Initial settings page.
  • Then, find and select the “Applications” menu.
  • To lock the application, please select "Lock application".
  • You will be asked to enter the Xiaomi HP security that was made before, be it using a pattern, PIN, fingerprint scanner or facial recognition.
  • Once open, please press the "Turn on" button to activate the app lock feature.
  • After that, you will be asked to set a lock method for locked apps. You can choose which method to use, for example, pattern, PIN, or password.

  • If so, please press "Next" and re-enter the key that was created to confirm.
  • After that, you will be asked to enter the lock method into your Xiaomi account (Mi Account). This Mi Account function is to recover the lock in case you forget it at any time.
  • However, if you don't want to do this, you can press the "Later" button to skip this step.
  • After that, you will also be asked to confirm fingerprint scanning and facial recognition to make opening the application easier.
  • After successfully logging in, you can freely choose which apps to lock.
  • The trick is to press the toggle next to the name of the intended application until it turns blue.
  • After all these steps have been successfully carried out, please go back and lock your Xiaomi Smartphone first. Then, you can immediately try to open the locked application. If the application asks to enter the application lock, then the method that was just done has succeeded.

Now, you don't have to worry anymore when your Smartphone is borrowed by friends or other people. Because, that person will not be able to open your personal application at will.
