What is the Lock Component?

The Lock component provides an additional layer of security to your apps. With it, users can lock your apps on their devices, securing them from unauthorized access. To unlock an app, users have to key in a passcode that they set upon initial use. If a user forgets their passcode, you may either let them reset it or they will need to re-download the app. You can also allow users with Touch ID-capable devices to lock and unlock apps.

Why use the Lock Component?

The Lock component ensures that your users are able to secure apps installed on their devices from unauthorized access. This component can be used in conjunction with other security components, for example, Login and Email Verification, for more secure user experience.
