Hello friends,

I would like to add touch ID to my xamarin.forms app ! Has anyone done this before? What options do i have? I would very much appreciate any help or guidance you are able to give me.

Thanks

    This is the only solution I have found to do with fingerprint so far

    Do you know if it supports a combination of touch ID and pin-code?

    Just touch ID, I've used it before it shows a generic iOS alert asking for your fingerprint

    What about Android?

    ok! I have one last question. Can i force the login page(touch ID) again when user switched to another app or suspended the device? If yes, please describe how?

    Yeah sure, Why not put the Touch ID request on the OnStart or OnResume events in your App class?

    How do you trigger the authenticate? You put you finger on the Touch ID then how are you calling AuthenticateAsync?
    You have to press another button before? thx in advance

    I created a sample project to do it on Xamarin Form.
    You may google 'JimmyPun610/XamarinTouchID' and check it.
    Still some issue to handle but I have no time for it.
