Nowadays we get the idea that being safe is something completely impossible. However, the truth is that much of that security that seems unattainable can pass us by. And when we talk about being safe we are referring to several things. For example, if we know that our smartphone is being tampered with and that they have access to certain things that they shouldn’t, then it’s in our hands to put an end to this. It is for this reason that if you have a Xiaomi smartphone you should perhaps consider blocking apps by password.
Xiaomi smartphone: how to lock apps by password
This process is not very complicated and in fact it works well. This is because Xiaomi even thought about the fact that we can forget the password we choose. Still, we’ll go there.
The first thing we have to do is go to the settings.
When we are in that menu we have to access applications. Next, just choose application lock.
Now in the new window we have to click on Connect.
After introducing a pattern for this purpose, we are invited to log in to our Xiaomi account. This is if we haven’t already done so. Now here attention. It is that on the one hand it is not mandatory and we can skip this step. However, there is something important to point out. If we don’t do it, we won’t be able to recover access to the applications. This is if we forget the password.
Application blocking or in this case unlocking can also be done in another way. Using fingerprint.
When we go deeper into this mode, the Xiaomi smartphone itself gives you some suggestions about the apps that tend to be blocked the most. However, you are free to ignore these suggestions.
Meanwhile, on the other screen, in addition to blocking apps, we can also hide sensitive notifications. This is also important. It’s just that after all, blocking apps and not notifications would be a cat hiding with its tail out. In this way we are really protected.
From the moment we have already chosen the apps, we make them safer. This way you will only be able to access those who have the fingerprint configured or know the password.
