Some apps come with an extra layer of security whereby you have to enter a password or passcode to use it, even if the phone is already unlocked. For example banking apps do require such security measures as it contains sensitive financial information. But what if you wanted to protect apps that might not come with that feature built-in?

If you do, you might be interested to learn that an upcoming CyanogenMod build will have such a feature that’s baked into the operating system. This was revealed by CyanogenMod on Google+ in which they wrote, “Rewrote a bit of the protected apps implementation. It properly intercepts intents now for any application which has a protected component, and even allows for fingerprint authentication if your device supports it.”
