    I've enabled fingerprint security as one way to unlock my Moto Z Force. However, is it possible to require a fingerprint to open a particular app? Thanks.

    Some apps have fingerprint login built into them. Or, are you asking to set the fingerprint as a security measure to allow the app to even open?

    Thanks, Scott. I want to require a fingerprint for the app to open. For example, my Yahoo! email app is set to allow access without my password, so anyone with my phone can access my account. While I always have my phone nearby, it could get lost and I might not remotely wipe it soon enough. Of course, I could set Yahoo! to require my password for logon, but my passwords are very complex and my memory not so good.

    Off the top of my head I'm not sure if that's part of stock Android or not?

    Thanks again. I can use something like AppLock - Fingerprint Unlock or a similar app.

    As I think about this more, if someone takes/finds my phone, he has to get past the standard PIN lock to get to any apps. Using a longer PIN seems just as secure. So, I'm not sure there's any benefit to apps that lock other, individual apps.

    CM AppLock. Works great. It even takes a pic using the front facing camera if anyone tries to unlock the individual app. The pic of the perpetrator is then emailed to you. Also has a pin lock
