FileMaker Go 15 Touch ID

Adding an extra layer of security on top of Apple’s iCloud Keychain, Touch ID can be enabled for solutions that have their login credentials saved in Keychain, enabling biometric authentication for your most important solFileMaker Pro 15 File Optionsutions. For mobile devices without a Touch ID sensor, you will prompted for your device passcode instead of your fingerprint, allowing the same added security for your solutions.

For each solution, an option may be enabled on the FileMaker Pro side to require the device to have a passcode enabled before it stores the password for the solution in iCloud Keychain.

FileMaker Go also now includes Touch ID and passcode protection for your keychain entries. Press the cog icon at the top right of the Launch Center, then select Manage Keychain. If you have entries that require an iOS passcode, it will prompt you to use your fingerprint or passcode to see the entries. If you select Cancel or do not have a passcode, FileMaker Go hides those entries that require a passcode.
