    You can't, sorry. Just unlock it before handing it to your friends

    Are you handing them the phone for general use or for a specific app that you open to show them? If for an app - open the recent apps list and if you long-press one (where depends on the version of Android, which you don't mention, nor the device) and on that menu should be a "pin" option, to allow only that app to be used.

    Some devices also allow for secondary profiles to be set up, maybe you could look into that?

    Well, in order to get into the fingerprint/PIN settings you need to authenticate again, or should need to be entered.

    Some phones have guest mode , Samsung does not , I recommend anything you dont want seen put in secure folder and protect it with pin/password/fingerprint
