  5. I would love to lock a folder of sensitive apps with password or pin.

    There should be an option to lock a folder of sensitive apps or lock each app individually with password or pin.

  6. App lock

    Please bring app lick feature within the launcher which helps to lock few of the apps. For opening the app you need to provide passcode or fingerprint. It helps in privacy. Very less number of trusted app locker are present on play store. Adding it to Microsoft launcher will actually benefit a lot of people since it is coming from a renowned company.

  7. Fingerprint to hide apps

    It would be so much easier if there's an option to use fingerprint to hide apps instead of the regular pin.

  14. app lock

    Provide app lock function.
    though it's available partially by hidden apps.
    when user hides the app it's not available without password but if notification appears then app open ups without password.

  16. remove easy (gear icons) access to settings and hidden apps features

    remove the obvious launcher settings icon when you scroll up on the dock, and other easily findable / hidden entries into launcher settings. Except, for a gesture to access hidden settings.

  17. Recognize separately the Parallel apps for phones like Oneplus or Xiaomi so we can hide them, because now you can only hide the main app

    Recognize separately the Parallel apps for phones like Oneplus or Xiaomi so we can hide them, because now you can only hide the main app, and sometimes we need to hide the cloned ones
