    • Rooting won’t cause any harm in fingerprint and other functionalities. It will help you improve device’s performance & battery life.

    • no need of rooting just for locking apps with fingerprint. Download Applock Fingerprint. Thats all needed. Don’t make your device rooted just for locking apps.
