  1. Tap the profile icon in the top-left of the home page.

Touch/Face ID - Depending on your phone you will have the ability to set up fingerprint or facial recognition to unlock your smartphone. If you don’t have a face or fingerprint registered in your smartphone, this will use the phone’s password instead. If you don’t have a password on your smartphone, this option won’t be available.

PIN Code - Set up a 4-digit PIN to unlock the app. If you have both PIN and Touch/Face enabled, you will be able to unlock your app using just Touch/Face with PIN acting as a backup in case the first fails.

Change PIN Code - Appears if you have the PIN Code setting enabled. Select this to change your currently enabled PIN.

Require after… - Select how soon after closing the app you want your security settings to prompt. You can add this delay so that you can close and re-open the app quickly without having to go through security settings. The default is set to be required immediately.
