The tutorial below, which teaches you how to add the extra layer of protection to secret chats, was performed on a Moto G5S Plus with Android 7.1.1 Nougat, starting with version 0.20.10.967 of Telegram X for Android.

Step 3. The "Passcode Lock" key will be in the disabled position. Place it in the activated position to open the lock options. Choose between PIN (code of four numbers), Password (letters and numbers), Pattern (default), Gesture (free design) and Fingerprint (digital print, displayed only on cell phones with the feature). In this tutorial, we chose the first option.
