Touch ID Support for STRIP

2015-06-29 12:00:00 -0400

If you take a look at the iTunes App Store US reviews for STRIP for iPhone, you’ll see this sentiment in a number of the more recent ones:

It’s a good app, however it’s missing a big thing here which other security apps have…simply NOT supporting “Touch ID” …whyyy!! Once this integrated will pump up the rate to 5*

I hope we’ve finally earned that fifth star, Kokiiiz78! Today we’re excited to announce that Touch ID authentication is now available in STRIP for iPhone and STRIP for iPad version 2.5.0.

The feature is optional, disabled by default, and simple to use.

To enable Touch ID authentication:

  1. Update STRIP to 2.5.0
  2. Login to STRIP and tap on the Settings view tab
  3. On the Settings view tap on Login Settings
  4. Tap on the switch labeled “Enable Touch ID login”
  5. You may be prompted to authenticate with your Touch ID by iOS
  6. That’s it! The next time you are asked to login to STRIP you will be prompted for your Touch ID

As an aside, this feature works nicely in conjunction with the Auto Lock Timer preference, which allows you to keep STRIP unlocked for a chosen interval.

Changes in this version:

  • Provides new “Enable Touch ID login” feature under Settings -> Login Settings
  • Search view now searches your records as you type
  • Password Generator view maintains state when leaving STRIP

Additional changes to the iPad version:

  • Fixes search bar disappearing when tapped twice quickly

Thanks so much to our beta testers for helping us to identify bugs and edge cases early in the process. Your efforts and repeatedly installing beta builds over the last month really helped us as we vetted this version for release.
