Want to use FaceID/TouchID or fingerprint authentication to access the Rooster Money app?

Updated over a week ago

Biometrics authentication is only available for devices that support biometrics and on version 5.3.0 or higher of the Rooster Money app.

  1. From the Parent Dashboard, select the Menu in the top right corner

  2. Tap Manage Account

  3. From this page you will be able to set up Face ID or TouchID

  4. You can also select when you want to be able to use biometric authentication eg to unlock the app or to just to confirm password actions

If you do not see this  your device does not support biometrics (or you are on an older version of the app).

To enable, tap on the biometrics option. You will be asked  to authenticate the account with your fingerprint or face to proceed. 

Please note: If you have added your child's biometric information to your device, then your child could access the parent section of the app if parent biometrics is turned on.

To set up biometric authentication on your child's device:

  1. Login to the Rooster Money app on your child's device using their login information

  2. Tap on the Menu in the top right corner 

  3. Select "Secure with ...." option at the bottom of the list

They will be asked to authenticate the account with their fingerprint or face to proceed.

They can then decide where to use biometrics. To save the changes, they will be asked to enter their password.

Once this is turned on, your child will be able to see the “Secure with …” biometrics button in their menu if their device supports biometrics.
