Nexonia Administrators can set the Mobile PIN & Fingerprint Lock feature to Always or When acting for other users. To learn more: How to Configure Mobile PIN & Fingerprint Lock.
If your account Administrators have set this feature to Always, the PIN/Fingerprint feature will be automatically enabled for all users, and therefore users will not need to follow the instructions above.
If your account Administrators have set the Mobile PIN & Fingerprint Lock feature to When acting for other users (default setting), the PIN/Fingerprint feature is enabled only for users who proxy or "Act For" other users on the app. Users can follow the instructions above to enable the PIN/Fingerprint feature on their individual mobile app.
The mobile device must be capable and configured to detect fingerprints (fingerprint sensor present and fingerprints registered in the system). Otherwise a PIN is activated instead.
Users can disable the PIN/Fingerprint feature from their mobile app Settings, if their account Administrators have set the Mobile PIN & Fingerprint Lock feature to When acting for other users and the user did not proxy or "Act For" another user on the app. When disabling the feature, the user will be prompted to authenticate their identity using their fingerprint. Upon completion, the feature will be disabled.
