For security reasons, enterprises may want to prevent continuous access to an app without periodic authentication.
An app passcode can ensure the app is only accessible to the entitled user and that the user identity is maintained over time. A biometric, such as TouchID, can typically be implemented as a layer above the PIN code to optimize the user experience.
The recommended approach for implementing a passcode is to embed the AirWatch SDK into your app and set the SDK profile configuration to enable authentication.
As an alternate approach, the AppConfig Community provides sample code and implementation details on how to enable this feature using a managed configuration.
The third approach is to leverage AirWatch App Wrapping. The app developer must validate that only approved MADP platforms and coding techniques as documented by the AirWatch App Wrapping Guide are used in the app in order to use this feature.
