Possibility of setting up Touch ID if you have a Touch OD supported device and an older iOS device

I'm actually confused about this one
Is it possible to set up fingerprint unlock if you have a Touch ID supported device and an older iOS device with physical home button (both devices have 1password synced)

    Hey @daz,

    Yep, you can do what you're asking… if I'm understanding correctly. :)

    As examples, I use Touch ID to unlock 1Password on an iPad Air 2. On older iPad 2 and iPhone 5C devices, I use a PIN to unlock 1Password:

    If your device doesn't have Touch ID, you will see options to use your a PIN to unlock 1Password instead of your fingerprint. For security reasons, your 1Password PIN and iOS passcode should not be the same.

    1Password settings are not synced between devices; they're configured separately on each device.

    Be sure to let me know if you're still confused about this or if I've misunderstood. Cheers!
