On my iPhone's home screen I have created a folder wherein I have placed few of my private apps which I don't have to be accessed if someone just incase uses my phone. How can I restrict the user from opening that folder or to be specific to how add passcode on the folder at iPhone's home screen.

I also search for appStore but didn't find any relevant app.

Please note that I am not asking how to protect a single app. That I know I can handle by using guided access. But my question is around protecting an app folder without jailbreaking.

    There's many apps on the App Store that allow you to password-protect files/folders created/accessed within that app. There's no way of doing this with the base OS, you'll need to use a specific app. – fsb Aug 2 '16 at 13:53
