Hi guys, For the last several months I am thinking about the following - is there a possibility to automatically log on on the mobile app? After all, so close to 2019, practically all the modern phones have some kind of internal credentials store and a secure way to obtain credentials from it - being it fingerprint, stereo camera, pin, pattern... Since my mobile banking apps (all the three) support biometrics/pin logon, I just cannot believe it's not possible from technical and security point of view to make the home automation authenticate the same way. Obviously, for this to be working as expected, two things should be possible (both of them): In Fibaro cloud service, set default credentials for logon for every home center (local ID) you have added (so that you are only asked to logon once, when you connect to home.fibaro.com with your Fibaro ID). In Fibaro mobile app, store the cloud credentials (Fibaro ID) in the mobile OS' credentials store and retrieve it through biometrics or pin authentication. This will make the use of the mobile app way more convenient without sacrificing security at all. Even more, currently many people have the same Fibaro ID and Local IDs for all their home centers, which means that the security is practically worse... Let me know what you think about this idea?
