From an idea of @FatMinMin (MinMinGuard) and @Maxr1998 (MaxLock),
I present you FingerLock.

FingerLock is an Xposed module only for Samsung devices with fingerprint sensor (Note4, Edge, S5, Note S tablets) which gives you the ability to protect your apps with the fingerprint.
FingerLock does not need to run background services. When you launch a locked app, FingerLock detects the event and asks for your fingerprint without impacting performances or battery.

Up to now I have implemented the following features:
- Log unauthorized accesses
- Secure preview in recent apps list.
- Show system apps
- Enable Samsung backup password
- Choose after how much seconds apps are locked
- Fingerprint required to clear user data
- Secure Zone. Automatically unlock apps if you are connected to a trusted WiFi network or Bluetooth device (donation package)
- Mask notifications. The notification text of locked apps is replaced with a generic "New Notification" text. (donation package)
- Prevent uninstall. The android package manager is hooked. (donation package)

You can download it from:
Xposed repo - http://repo.xposed.info/module/com.invano.fingerlock
Play Store - https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...ano.fingerlock

Source code:
https://github.com/invano/FingerLock

I open this thread to use it as a support space. You can write here if you have problems, you find bugs or simply if you want to suggest new features.


If you like Fingerlock or you want to sustain my work, you could think about the donation package in order to offer me a coffee.
Otherwise you can still compile your own complete version by slightly modifying my source code.

Do you want to see FingerLock translated in your language? You can help me by sending me a pm!

Hi, I'm sorry but it won't work because it is built on Samsung Pass SDK

Yeah, I'm sorry for this. There is a bug with a library I am using in settings that causes fc also on galaxy S5.

I am working on it and I'll upload a new version in few hours.

Thank you for the info

Every time I open the app, it force closes. All I see is a white screen, and then the force close message. Whats going on?

There is something wrong with S5s and Tab Ss In the meanwhile I have just sent a pm to you guys to see if the new build finally solves this problem.

Ok, I have just uploaded a new version both on xposed repo and playstore. I think in few hours it will be up.
I have tested it on a Galaxy S5 with 4.4.2 and it seems to do not crash...let me know if there are still problems/crashes.
