some apps indeed have this feature, but IMO it’s not should be the responsibility of each app to protect themself, rather the responsibility of the OS.


In previous versions of delta chat I remember that there was this feature but it caused some bugs and issues so it was removed. In addition, the phone should be encrypted at the system level so it is a function, in my opinion, quite superfluous.

My opinion there should be a protection at app level in cases when you HAVE TO unlock your mobile in some reasons and pass it to some one. :man_shrugging:
