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.

FileMaker Go 15 adds Quick Actions to its list of new features, enabling solutions frequently used to be conveniently opened from a shortcut menu on the home screen. Accessing your FileMaker solution has never been easier or faster with a single press.


Touch ID & 3D Touch integration with FileMaker Go 15 makes FileMaker Go more convenient and secure than ever through the use of Touch ID to access your keychain and 3D Touch to evoke Quick Actions on the home screen. These are some of the many new useful features that come with the latest release of the FileMaker platform.

"We were actually able to add more features than we thought would be possible within our budget. We always experienced a ‘can do’ attitude and DB Services was incredibly patient and easy to work with."
Courtney Hartman
Art Director
"The new FileMaker custom website interface is very user-friendly and easy to follow for our clients. In addition, it is much faster than the old Instant Web Publishing (IWP) interface. Thank you and all the others who have helped us out at DB Services. I am very grateful for the excellent service you provide us. Its nice to know we can call you for help if we have an issue."

"We needed a solution that would simplify the administration of our responsibilities under our contract with the State of Indiana. We have seen a dramatic increase across the state in the number of potential foster and adoptive parents that have begun the preparation and training process. This increase has resulted in a significant opportunity for children available for adoption. That’s a big win for everyone! And it’s all because we can refer potential parents to the proper state contacts efficiently and quickly."

"Thank you for all of your expertise and valuable help. I am so grateful to have found DB Services."

"Thank you for our new database system. We transitioned from a carbon copy paper based system to a digital database. The software has saved us time and money. We used to archive all our jobs in cabinets, now we can look up a job in seconds from anywhere. The software allows us to easily email estimates to our customers in pdf format. In a year there was a return on investment just from eliminating the purchasing of our carbon forms."
Todd Cartmel
"The new system allows us to create and track jobs for customers along with inventory, something we had been doing with separate word and spreadsheet files. Because it’s now so intuitive, new staff members are able to begin using the database immediately without our usual training session and ‘cheat sheets’ for getting around within the file."
