    Which phone ? Most phones today don't need a passcode to answer even if you have fingerprint security on

    Like mustang7757 mentioned, I don't think you'll find a way to require unlock to accept a call but there's probably an app for that. Thinking about it just now, something I've never used but that might work for you, if the caller is a contact, is making them a private number. It might be personal but I think it's private... Anyway I know the option keeps them visibly out of your contacts but I'm not sure how calls from them are handled??? Also most devices seem to have a hide an app function. Hiding an app requires a password to make the app visible. So if it's possible to hide the dialer using this method it might be possible to require a password to access it... Hmmm, not sure how it would affect getting calls though, because of the app is hidden and a call comes in, it's not supposed to show the app unless the hidden apps are turned on... IDK. Probably can't add the dialer/phone app to the hidden apps.

    Like I first mentioned tho, maybe an app. I know apps like Nova launcher have a bunch of customizations.

    Just curious, would you want the caller's identity to be hidden as well until unlocked? Seems like a giant pain to me but then again I get half a dozen BS calls a day or seems like, from socal security, the IRS, a car warranty center and a prince from Nairobi who just needs me to cash a check for him. Imagine my disappointment unlocking just to find one of them. Lol

    Sounds like the OP wants a passcode before answering but I'm not sure.

    Out of curiosity I went and looked at the app. A high number of 1 star ratings. Using this app's page tho might be useful to find similar apps with better reviews.

    Good point, but I also notice that the dev seems to respond to many of them, trying to see if he can help. That's always a good sign!
