App login ideas!

Could we maybe also try and update the app so we could have a option of fingerprint, face recognition, or pin for choice??

Erm you can already, can’t you? :thinking:

I’m on Android with no face unlock. But if you have one it’s there as a toggle like Face ID on iOS.

Hey thanks for getting back to me, yeah fingerprint works and was just unsure where there was an option now or in the future updates for face id or a 4 or 6 digit pin number to login instead? :grimacing:

Oh on iOS Face ID has been there absolutely ages.

The last I saw on Android was that it was being tested with Pixel 4 last November.

Looks like that got into labs

Yeah so you should see it at the bottom in Labs as use new biometrics. This is what I see.

It changes the previous toggles to this:

and that did

Couldnt get this working :face_with_raised_eyebrow: I assume this:

EDIT: This will only work if your device supports biometric authentication! Some devices allow you to unlock your phone with your camera, but this is not biometric-based, and thus not secure enough.

Most Android devices (other than the Pixel) don’t let other apps (e.g. Monzo) use their face recognition, as it isn’t secure enough
