Google has updated its Google Drive iOS app with a new feature: Privacy Screen. This allows you to secure the app on your iPhone with a new security layer and unlock using a face ID or touch ID.
You can set the app to fly when you are off, or 10 seconds, 1 minute or 10 minutes after doing so. Internal access is also required to use the biometric system of your iPhone model.
So, in case your mobile phone is lost or stolen or when you are lending to someone, you can rest assured that any sensitive or personal information stored in your Drive folder will be safe.
To make this new task work, you must open Google Drive on your iPhone and access the & # 39; privacy & # 39; option from the drop-down menu that you can access by tapping the icon in three horizontal lines.
It's an easy way to prevent others from accessing your apps and that's why we're surprised that more developers have been accepted. WhatsApp has the same functionality for iOS and Android, so we're surprised that Google hasn't added it to its Android app yet.
It might be because all the latest iPhones (iPhone 5S or later) have either a touch ID or touch ID, and most users use them because they work really well. Its technology is well integrated into its operating system.
On the other hand, aside from the fact that Google owns Android, it doesn't have a biometric system that is consistent across terminals. Its distribution is more fragmented and the adoption of new versions of the app is slower (and certainly more complicated than iOS).
