CyanogenMod is working on a new way to assign protected status to any app on a device, even if it is a system application. Assigning this status seems to be very simple, as users can assign a folder on the homescreen as protected, and then place apps inside it. Once apps have been designated as ‘protected’, they cannot be opened from anywhere, without authentication. Even if users click on a link on a website that would launch the application, it will still ask for authentication. The authentication method could be a password, PIN, pattern lock, or even a fingerprint lock for phones with the required hardware.
