Security

Passcode

To protect access to the iOS app with a Passcode, enable Passcode Lock in the Setting’s Security section. You will then be prompted to enter, and repeat, a 4-digit Passcode.

Lock Delay

When a Passcode is enabled, the app will be locked every time you change to another application. However, under Settings  Security  Lock application, you can choose to only lock the application after 1, 5, or 30 minutes, instead of "immediately", which is the default.

Biometrical Lock

After a Passcode has been created, a Biometrical Lock, or Touch ID, can also be used to gain access to the app. To enable it enable Touch ID in the Setting’s Security section, and then enter your 4-digit Passcode. The next time you need to authorise access to the app, you will be able to enter either your Passcode, or use your stored biometrical data.
