A system is described that enables a computing device (e.g., a mobile phone, a camera, a tablet computer, etc.) to associate an application with a security level (e.g., a high-sensitive level, a middle-sensitive level, a low-sensitive level, etc.), and provide additional security mechanisms (e.g., auto-lock, biometric authentication, password authentication, etc.) to the application based on the security level. A user may set a security level for an application, and the computing device may provide additional security mechanisms to the application based on the selected security level. For example, a user may associate a banking application with a high-sensitive security level, and based on the high-sensitive security level, the computing device may periodically (e.g., every second, every 10 seconds, every minute, etc.) require the user to provide biometric inputs to verify user identity.
