How to Lock Xiaomi MIUI 12 Recent Apps

On the navigation buttons on Android phones, especially on Xiaomi phones, there are several buttons that we can use, such as the home button to return to the main page of our smartphone, the back button to return to the previous page on our phone and the recent app button. We usually use the recent app button to see what apps we just opened on our phones. By closing all apps in the recent app, the recently opened app will be deleted and automatically closed. Well, usually there are certain apps that we don’t want to close automatically when we clean recent apps. Usually we will lock the app so that it does not close automatically. For Xiaomi phones themselves, usually we can lock the app in the recent app by long tap on the app section then tap the padlock icon, but after the MIUI version is updated, the app lock feature in the recent app is lost and we can’t use the app lock feature in the recent app again using the method that was mentioned earlier. Now in this article, I will share how to lock the app in the recent app for the Xiaomi Miui 12 smartphone using the latest method.
