To be honest, I find it a pain when other apps do this… I have no need to hide apps like this although I appreciate others may feel that they need to. I’d much rather identify recent apps visually rather than reading their names…
Totally agree here - especially when it’s the “end of the month” and I’m shifting money to pay credit cards. : open CC app, authenticate, go to the payment section, open Monzo, authenticate, copy the sort code, go back to CC app, authenticate, past the sort code, open Monzo, authenticate, copy the account number, go back to CC app, authenticate, past the account number etc (same with paying by debit card).
Doesn’t the phone have to be unlocked for the app carousel to be visible? The security at this level is having a PIN or biometric lock on your phone, so no-one other than you can get that far in the first place.
As others have mentioned, if you’d still like to blank this screen anyway, there is a privacy option that will let you do this.
Me, though? I wish more apps would work the Monzo way. Trying to check my CC balances and make payments is an absolute pain in the proverbial due to the apps locking and demanding I reauthenticate if I so much as look away for two seconds.
