  1. Lock Apps! We Needed it! That's will protect our apps If we forget to close the apps. Because hide app no covered it

    Hi Dev, I love this launcher that's work great with "Next" Lock screen. My default launcher is ZenUI. I want Microsoft Launcher adopted the Lock Apps by ZenUI. ZenUI lock apps is very solid. Okey Hide Apps was built in with password for security, but that don't cover apps when you forget to close it. If we have the apps lock we don't to worry about that. I wish you grant it. TY

      • 应用抽屉里的应用,如果隐藏之后连桌面快捷方式都隐藏了,能否设置只隐藏抽屉不隐藏桌面,或者应用抽屉能用文件夹整理,不然太多了

        • It would be great to have a gesture to get to your hidden apps

          Pretty much it, enable a vault with your hidden apps and pics, vids, etc... through a gesture locked with touch/face ID, pin or password

                      双开应用桌面不能同时显示图标,只显示一个图标,进去时选择太麻烦,且双开应用不能一个隐藏一个显示。

                              If this feature is enabled it would be very easy and useful to access the hidden apps.

                              • If you add an app to the home screen, and decide to hide it in app drawer. make it so you can hide it without it hiding on home screen.

                                I think it would be good if I could add an app to my dock and be able to hide it in app drawer so I don't have to have it in two places. if I hide it now. the app will vanish from app drawer and dock.

                                    • finger print lock for hidden apps

                                      Hi Team,
                                      Its better if we have finger print lock for hidden apps instead of using 4 digit pin.
                                      people beside will see the pin and they might misuse.
