Enabling Biometrics on Your Mobile Device
Updated over a week ago

We highly encourage enabling biometrics to ease the authentication process and extend the session length when accessing the platform. Biometric authentication uses fingerprint or facial recognition to unlock your smart device quickly and easily. This adds an additional layer of security if the device is left unattended and the app is backgrounded. Only the device owner may re-open the app and view any potentially sensitive information therein.

  • If you have biometric authentication enabled on your mobile device, once you have signed in initially to SightPlan Mobile, you will be able to keep signing back into SightPlan using the device's biometric settings you have selected.
