Biometrics & AppLock

New to BitDefender Android mobile

I like the AppLock but find it annoying to press "use biometrics" each time I need to use biometrics to open an app.

Is there a way to make biometric login for apps default?

    I think this may also vary from one type of phone to another.

    An easy method to stop being asked by the App Lock feature to enter the PIN code or fingerprint/biometrics confirmation for the protected apps each time you access them is to activate Smart Unlock.

    With Smart Unlock you can set as trusted the Wi-Fi networks you usually connect to, and when connected to them, the App Lock blocking settings will be disabled for the protected apps.

    To configure the Smart Unlock feature, follow these steps:

    1. Tap 'More' on the bottom navigation bar.

    2. Tap 'App Lock'.

    3. Tap the switch next to Smart Unlock, if the feature is not yet enabled. Validate using your fingerprint or your PIN. The first time you'll activate the feature, you will need to enable the location permission. Tap the ALLOW button, then tap ALLOW again.

    4. Tap ADD to set the Wi-Fi connection you're currently using as trusted.

    Whenever you change your mind, disable the feature and the Wi-Fi networks you have set as trusted will be treated as untrusted.
