Is fingerprint (touch) supported

Post by stevec » Fri Mar 24, 2017 4:32 pm

So that it could be used on a longrange log in?

Not currently.
Which platform are you using (iOS, Android)?
We can enhance LongRange to support this, however on iOS, the public API provided by Apple only allows us to verify if a fingerprint matches one of the registered fingerprints, but it won't tell us which one. This means the mechanism will only work if the device is used by a single user (otherwise LR won't be able to tell which username/password should be used to login)
If this still satisfies your requirements, let us know and we will work something out.

Can you provide some more details of how you want it to work?
I assume you have a login page in your app where you enter a username/password.
You want to user to optionally be able to login using fingerprints when the login page is shown?

Yes allow for touch on log in rather than key password. On my banking apps it has an allow touch option that cab be selected

I see this was added viewtopic.php?f=11&t=602&p=1830&hilit=touch#p1830

But appears to be app specific and not schema. Anyway to be schema specific?

What I am looking for is ability to save different passwords based on schema. Currently it is overlaying and only saving 1 password regardless of schema. So when switching schemas and using touch it will pull in the last one (which is then wrong).

We will make an enhancement on this. In next version, by default, password will always be saved by schema. If schema is deleted, the corresponding password will be deleted as well.
