- OneDrive for Android now supports locking with a fingerprint.
- Users could previously only use a PIN to lock the app.
- OneDrive for iOS also received an update to fix a bug.
Microsoft's OneDrive app for Android now supports the ability to lock it using a fingerprint. Previously, users only had the ability to lock the app using a PIN. In addition to the new locking feature, OneDrive for Android also received an improved grid view to help photos "stand out" as stated in the app's changelog:
• In addition to a PIN Code, you'll now be able to use your fingerprint to lock the OneDrive app. • We've improved our grid view to help your photos stand out and look their best as well as making it easier than ever to see what photos are getting backed up in the Photos tab."
OneDrive for iOS also received an update, though it focuses on fixing a bug:
Text translation wasn't working for some users, turning a few options in the Settings page into a confusing game of 'guess that setting.' This has been fixed, and will look and read as you'd expect."
OneDrive's ability to be locked with a fingerprint helps secure files on your phone. Recently, Microsoft also announced an upcoming Personal Vault for OneDrive that increases security further.
Microsft's OneDrive can store files, photos, and videos. It's available across all major platforms to make sure that your content is available everywhere.
