[Discussion] password after 72 hours of non-use

Why it is necessary this 'security' if i have fingerprint and facial recognition? Ok..we have this, but when i enter the right pin, why i need to press 'ok'? Before update was automatic recognition if it is correct to open.

The 72 hours is a security thing. Trust me, you do NOT want to forget your PIN, that is rather painful to remedy, and if it only asked on reboots, you'd get loads of people forgetting the stuff. And the ok thing is because there are tricks to guess a pin, if you have to validate it, it adds one layer to the complexity.

.....ok, but i use fingerprint, and i think it is impossible to crack or something the fingerprint. It would be great to make an option if we want to use pin..
I know about face, can be easy to crack

The fingerprint sensor, in any phone, is about as secure as leaving your wallet on a coffee table in a station at rush hour. It is fine for day to day usage, but frankly to someone in the know (and that takes 10 minutes on youtube to learn), it's crackable. So definitely not something you want to rely on for core things (one of the reasons why it will ask you the pin if you change permissions on sensitive settings.)

As I said, it's an extra layer of security, as an automatically validating pin is easier to guess than one that is user validated.

ok but if you use your fingerprint to login to like apps those apps also have access to your fingerprint so I think it's more of a security measure than anything else but I wouldn't worry about it too much cuz if you're downloading apps from you know the Google app store then you should be fine but if you sideload apps don't use your fingerprint to sign in on those apps...

Why can't I decide what I feel is secure for me?

Forcing the pin every 72 hours is BS.
