I know we have secure folders, but the way Huawei is doing it is really great.. depending on the fingerprint you use it opens up a different homescreen with different (or no) accounts logged in.

so if you're being forced to unlock your phone. all your contacts / pictures / data will be secure since you opened up a secondary sandboxed homescreen with different settings.

cause that's a great way to think. give up your right basic human right to privacy because "if you're not doing anything it doesn't matter". shouldn't put blinds in your house windows cause, "if you're not doing anything it shouldn't matter if people can see what you're or your children doing"

If you want to argue the point then if you have nothing to hide I'd like all your social media accounts, login names and passes. Fact is we all have the right to protect our personal items best we can. Samsung should be able to do something like this with ease.

the post says... "so if you're being forced to unlock your phone"
The only people I can imagine asking you to unlock your phone would be the authorities and again I say ....
If you have nothing to hide why wouldn't You???

@echo everyone's whole life is in their phone nowadays. home address, friends and family, bank information, calendar (days you won't be at home). extreme example, say held at gunpoint and that information was handed to someone.

but to go off your example. recently they passed a law where they're allowed to search your phone before entering the United States. what if you have private pictures of your spouse in your phone? there is laws put in place (fourth amendment in the US and section 8 of the charter of rights and freedoms in Canada) to protect people from government officials abuse of power & illegal search and seziures without probable cause or a warrant. so you're telling me, just because someone is in a uniform you're gonna give them the right to look at those photos? what if your boss needs to look through your phone thinking your doing something wrong? you're going to let them see that too?
