OMM Passcode and iOS Touch ID

How does the OMM passcode policy work with Apple's Touch ID setting? Are users still able to log into their devices using their fingerprint instead of using the device passcode?

Hi Tiffany,

Yes, users are still able to log in with TouchID. As a pre-requisite to setup TouchID, users must create a passcode. You can use OMM to specifcy the requirements for that passcode (complexity, length, etc.).

Apple has a pretty good write up on TouchID here: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT204587 if you want to learn more.

Yes.  With IOS, users are still able to use their fingerprint. What I have found is that with Android, you can't use the pattern lock with OMM. But everything else should work.

What about mobile applications that are deployed via Okta Mobile?  I want my users to be able to use TouchID to access a custom iOS app without having to enter their Okta User Name and Password every time they log in.  TouchID would easily solve this.
