What is the PrivateSpace? How to use it?
PrivateSpace means creating a new system space on your phone, and then putting your private information (such as contacts, images, messages) here, so that you can hide the information that you don't want others to see.

1. How to enable PrivateSpace?
Open Settings > Security & privacy > PrivateSpace, follow the prompts to set a privacy password and fingerprint to create a private space.(Note: Only one PrivateSpace can be established)

2) On the main space: Open Settings> Security & privacy> PrivateSpace>Log in

3. How to quite PrivateSpace?
On the PrivateSpace, open the setting> Security & privacy> PrivateSpace, then choose to exit.

4.How to delete PrivateSpace?
Deleting PrivateSpace will delete all apps and data stored in this space and is unrecoverable. You can choose any of the following methods to delete it:
1) In the main space, open Settings > Security & privacy > PrivateSpace and click the three dots at the upper right corner, then choose to delete.
2) In the PrivateSpace, open Settings > Security & privacy > PrivateSpace and choose to delete directly.

5.How to switch quickly between main space and PrivateSpace?

6.How to transfer files between the main space and the private space?

2) Choose “MainSpace to PrivateSpace” or “PrivateSpace to MainSpace”
3) Choose the file you need to transfer.

Note: Memory cards cannot be used in the privacy space, so only files stored on the phone can be transferred from the privacy space to the main space. In addition, transferring files stored in the cloud between the main space and the private space is not supported.


Finally, how to hide the privacy space entry? Following the below steps:
In the PrivateSpace, open the Settings > Security & privacy > PrivateSpace, then choose Hide PrivateSpace.

Did you get it? If you have some private information on your phone that you don't want others to see, creating a private space is a good idea.

I created my private space without fingerprint login. Now I want to add fingerprint for easy access/login to prove space but there is no option for adding fingerprint. Is there such a solution?
