Okta Mobile security

Is there any plan to increase the security log in method for mobile devices similar to those used by online banking?  It would be good to see a more secure authentication method such as asking for random characters of a password you are required to set up rather than the current 4 digit PIN.

The fingerprint auth idea would be great. Secure yet still easy to use instead of yet another ultra-secure but ultimately frustratingly forgettable password that user's may end up writing down somewhere... not so secure after all!
