    I don't like having to unlock my phone every the time I want to use it.
    I prefer instead to lock individual apps.
    On my Samsung Galaxy S6 I was able to do this, I was using a third party application (AppLock) to unlock individual apps with firgerprint.

    But on my new Samsung Note 9 if I register my biometrics I have to lock the phone using them. It doesn't just store the biometrics. So there is no point then for me to lock apps individually.

    Is there a workaround to lock apps only (using fingerptrint) instead of locking the whole phone?

    Use secure folder and leave the phone unlocked

    If I leave the phone unlocked, it automatically deletes my fingerprint data from the phone and i cannot use it anywhere else.

    Hi, welcome to AC!

    Good point , forgot about that
    Samsung really doesn't give another option as some phones out there. You can try 3rd party app lockers but not sure how good they are .

    Hi, thank you.
    3rd party App Lockers are good, I have used them in my Galaxy S6, however they dont store/manage fingerprints. They use the fingerprints already stored in android/samsung....
    This Samsung move was ridiculous in my point of view.
