Setting up Face ID or Touch ID in Buildium's mobile manager app

Improving security with Biometrics

In an effort to continue to keep your data as secure as possible, we are introducing the ability to use biometrics to verify your identity before accessing your account through the manager mobile app.

This will give you the option to use Face ID or Touch ID on iOS devices and Fingerprint on Android devices. 

Please note that the user's first login will still require an email and password. After logging in the user will be prompted to enable biometrics for future launches of the app.  

You can opt-in or opt-out at any time via the More menu (More menu → Settings). When opted in, you can dictate how often you want the app to require biometrics. The optional increments will be:

  • Immediately
  • 15 minutes
  • 30 minutes
  • 1 hour
  • 4 hours

If you close the app, you will need to be inactive for the set time you have selected in order to force the face id or touch id to launch. 

NOTE: Uninstalling the app will remove all biometric setups. you will be prompted to set up again upon re-installation

NOTE: Android only supports fingerprints for app security and does note provide an option for facial recognition for app security.
