    First Direct Android app - fingerprint login 7th Nov 17 at 9:06 PM
    Just had an update for FD App pushed to my Android phone. Now supports fingerprint login. Nice.

    This is on a Samsung S7, Android 7.0 (Nougat).

    They took their time on that one. I’ve had Touch ID (and now Face ID) login on iOS for ages. I would’ve thought it would be easier to implement on Android. Good that they have it though. It saves having to remember the digital secure key password.

    Good that they're catching up, but very annoying that they are not enabling it on all Android devices that support fingerprint. They're being picky about the specific devices (and it doesn't include my LG G5, which is not exactly ancient).

    Why? All my other banking apps and more support fingerprint authentication, what is fd's problem?

    I always find fingerprint on Iphone temperamental anyway. Only 50% of the time does it work, do others find this?

    I wouldn't say 50%, but it does sometimes not recognise mine. Usually just after I've washed my hands. Perhaps prints require grime or sweat to work
