[Feature request][Mobile apps] Fingerpring authorization


Recommended Posts

The problem:

Some of the functions in Fibaro may get pretty security-sensitive, especially around locks and security systems.


However, the security of the Fibaro App is not very convincing!


1. The app does not allow requesting any type of authorization when connecting to the system.

2. Some (if not all) sensitive functionalities (like a secure lock) cannot be additionally protected by the app.


The solution:

I would be very happy to see the following options (I stress: options, not user requirements, as many users do not need any security at all!):

1. Starting the app (= connecting to HC/HC2) should have an option to request a fingerprint authorization or a PIN. The fingerprints seem to be already implemented in the app, and they are very useful and fast, so why not use them?

2. The user (or maybe even the administrator) should be able to set additional authorization (again: fingerprint or PIN) on any chosen functions. The most important ones are the secure devices, but it probably also applies to scenes and maybe any device in general.


Thanks in advance!
