Will you be implementing touch id on your Android version of the app?

I came from the iPhone and loved the option to use touch ID to open the app. Since switching to Android, I was disappointed to find that this was not an option. Is this something you will be considering in the future?

    @steve_wrigley: Android does not have Touch ID, as that's an Apple technology. However, Google added Nexus Imprint to Android in version 6, and any devices that support that standard should work with 1Password. Recent Nexus and Pixel devices do, as well as newer ones from Samsung:

    Use your fingerprint to unlock 1Password on your Android device

    I hope this helps. Be sure to let me know if you have any other questions! :)

  • I have the Note8 with a fingerprint scanner on the back. Should that work?

    @steve_wrigley: I don't recall hearing from anyone else with that device one way or the other, but I would guess that it would based on Samsung's other recent devices. Have you tried to set it up as in the guide I linked above?

  • I don't know how I missed that. It works! Thanks!
