On iOS allow initial access to the app via fingerprint
Where fingerprint technology exists, as in the iPhone 6, allow initial access to the app via fingerprint. The current requirement to enter a password when the app is opened for the first time in a session is unnecessarily cumbersome.

Paul Cohn & others with Android devices with Fingerprint sensor, please note Fingerprint login/unlock has been added to our Android app too, in SplashID Safe Android app version 8.1.2 released on Sep 21st 2016.
It only supports newer devices for now, so certain older models may not work, at least for now.
For example, some devices that should work fine are Samsung Galaxy S6, S7, and any Android phone that comes with Android OS 6.0 or newer.
Phones that initially came with Android OS 5 or older and have 6.0 now after an upgrade may not work.
Some common device models that do not work are Samsung Galaxy S5, Note 4, Note Edge.
We might add support for Fingerprint login for those older devices in the future.
See comment below -- just followed instructions and now open splashed on iPhone with fingerprint -- very handy
Don't understand this suggestion!... Like Mauro Gil said on the first comment
"That's already possible. Just go inside Splash ID to Settings --> Touch ID and select "Store SplashID password in iOS Keychain". Now your SplashID will open anytime using only Touch ID."
I have an iPhone 6 and an iPad Air 2 and it has worked EVERY time, even after rebooting the iPhone

I have a Galaxy S6 with a very good finger print scanner. I would like the ability to use finger print to open SplashID too. It is not available in settings on the Android app

All good biometric sensor will do and not limitted to finger print, eg. iris scan, voice print, face recognition, etc. But it is always a choice based on accurace over cost or availability of sensor. Personally I hope the smart phones will support iris scan features soon. This is least invasive.
This should be available for Android phones too such as Note 4...any phone with a finger print scanner.
Yes, but the Touch ID feature does not always work and I end up having to enter the password manually (iPad Air 2; iOS 8.3). Please consider fix.
