  1. Password protected pages

    When sliding to a protected page either enter valid password or biometrics to view and use its contents. Make all items on the page completely invisible from everywhere else in the system (notifications, parameters, frequently used, new application,...) while locked.

  3. Hide app with "long pressing" menu option

    Holding an app icon produces a few options but none include "Hide this App" - why not simply add this to the already built-in menu choices show from long pressing?

  7. Hidden apps password screen has to be moved to the bottom, as like your feed tabs are moved from top to bottom in order to get better access

    Hidden apps password screen ( Password Keypad and hidden apps ) has to be moved to the bottom, as like "your feed" tabs are moved from top to bottom in order to get better access.

  12. Native lock function at Launcher's options.

    All "hidden apps" appearing on gestures section -.-
    Short-term solution, make 'em visible only on their due page, nowhere else.

  17. ** Major Bug ** Enabled App Twin on Huawei P20 Pro and now Launcher won't run

    I wanted to run two versions of WhatsApp. I enabled App Twin on my Huawei P20 Pro. I then wished to "hide" one instance. I found that this can't be done as it hides both. I removed Whatsapp from Hidden Apps - but now Microsoft Launcher keeps vanishing. I get a message saying it's caused a serious error and asks me to uninstall it. No matter how many times I reboot or reinstall it.

    An option to hide games would be really nice, wether it is the Samsung game Launcher or a Microsoft game Launcher.

  20. You could also include app lock in this launcher

    Every launcher now comes with a app lock. In Microsoft launcher we have a space to hide apps which is a great feature. But in order to protect our privacy and fast access of apps , applock feature will be very helpful.
