#PMChallenge - use fingerprint to change between User and Guest mode

    Liehjan, Feb 5, 2019 :
    I'm really exited to participate in this contest, here is my suggestion.

    Who are the users?
    - This is for everyone who have sensitive personal (or company) information on their phone they don't want to share with others. (friends or family)

    What is the proposed function?
    - The purpose of this function is to seamlessly switch between user and guest profiles on the phone.

    What is the user value?
    - The user can be 100% sure that sensitive files are hidden from snooping eyes.

    If there are existing comparable functions in the smartphone industry, how is your proposed feature superior?
    - Yes, there is actually.. Xiaomi does something similar with MIUI
    Be sure to:
    Explain the logic behind this product and how you want it to be implemented
    - Now when every Oneplus phone has a fingerprint sensor, it would be easy to add a setting so that you can assign a specific finger to automatically apply the guest mode when phone is unlocked.

    Include directions and details via diagram sketches. Draw each screen and show the flow from screen to screen.

    Hope the community likes this idea as much as I do :)

    Smart idea to use different fingerprints to activate different modes.

    But how many people actually use the guest mode?

    At this point, probably not that many.. But if this would be implemented, more would start using it for sure

    Still the fingerprint changing modes sounds good, and making it customize able would be sweet.

    The same could be done with another pin/pattern too.

    It is a unique feature for Xiaomi devices that could be usable outside of xiaomi I suppose
