But technology is too developed for Pin lock and we all have Fingerprint sensors in our Phones, so in this post, I am gonna tell you guys, how you can Lock your termux app with the Fingerprint sensorπŸ”’, and make your termux secure so no one other then you can use the app πŸ”₯.



What is Termux Fingerprint Lock?

Termux Fingerprint Lock is a new way of locking your termux internally so that even if someone can bypass your basic app lock then they need to go through this fingerprint system inside the termux. This is a really good approach especially if you are living with other hackers or small siblings, and as a hacker, it's always a good idea to keep everything under your control.

This tool will give a new way to interact with your termux app, and it looks way cooler with this fingerprint system, one thing that you need to know is, that this tool uses the fingerprint already stored inside your phone, to put it simply, the termux app will only open with the fingerprint that you have locked your phone with.

Termux FingerPrint Tool is created by MrAlpha786 and you can check out his project on GitHub @MrAlpha786/Termux-Fingerprint-lock, This tool is written in bash and the Interface is really simple.

Step 3:

Now if you Restart Termux you will have to authenticate yourself with the fingerprint else the tool will close the termux app in 10 seconds. If your finger is correct then it will let you use your termux app normally else it will close the session.
