Can I configure ProntoForms to automatically lock after a period of time?

 

About

Enhance the security of the ProntoForms app by configuring a Passcode Lock (iOS, Android, and Windows 10 only). With this setting enabled, when the ProntoForms app is accessed on a mobile device (whether the app is freshly started, or the already-open app is accessed after the screen has powered off), the user will be prompted for a passcode to unlock ProntoForms.  This must be entered correctly before the user can continue using ProntoForms, ensuring that no there is no unauthorized use of the app or access to sensitive information.

 

Passcode Lock on iOS Devices

In the iOS app, ProntoForms Settings can be accessed with the Gear Icon on the bottom right of the home screen.

The other passcode options are:

  • Disable the passcode lock: Under Passcode Lock, select Turn Passcode Off Correct entry of the current passcode is required.
  • To change the passcode: Under Passcode Lock select Change Passcode.  Correct entry of the current passcode is required.
  • Erase Data for extra security: Under Passcode Lock, select Erase Data. This will clear all content in the ProntoForms app after 10 failed passcode entry attempts; form definitions, the inbox, outbox and drafts will be wiped, settings will be reset and the user will be logged out.  If the phone is wiped, it cannot be un-wiped.

You can also use your fingerprint to unlock your device if you have Apple Touch ID set up. Follow the steps to set up a passcode, then a new option will be visible:
