Biometrics have now been added to the app. You can now Sign in, Publish orders and buy PilotPoints with the biometrics on your phone. Please keep in mind that if your phone supports more than one type of biometric (i.e. Finger print and Face recognition) on many phone you will need to select in settings to change the default for which type is used.
In new version when you log in, application asks, would you like to use biometric authentication to log in to our app. If you select ”Yes”, depending on your phone, you can use either finger print or Face ID / face recognition -authentication to make orders in our system. If you select “Not now”, then the application asks you to input a PIN code as usual which you will need to publish orders as an orderer.
On Settings-page you can turn it off and back on. When you turn it off and press yes, system asks you to create a PIN code to make orders. PIN code is needed to make orders and buy PilotPoints.
If you log out from the app and biometric authentication is on, then when you log back in, application does not ask for PIN code, because it remembers that setting is on. You just may see that Face ID -icon on the screen. If you set it off and then log out, then when you log back in next time, system asks you to create a new PIN code.
Attention! There may be differences between phones. So for example, even though you phone has Face ID / Face recognition -feature, this feature doesn’t work on every phone model if it can’t be used with applications. So check the features of your phone model from the internet, if it doesn’t work…
