Enabling Touch ID/Face ID

Touch ID (iOS 9 and later) or Face ID (iOS 11) allows the password used to open a safe to be stored securely in the Secure Enclave of your iOS device. By authenticating with a fingerprint or faceprint, the password is retrieved and used to open your safe. Note however, that if a fingerprint/faceprint is added or deleted, or if the safe is renamed - the stored password will be invalidated. Touch ID/Face ID safe passwords are stored only on this device and are otherwise unrecoverable.
If you have enabled Touch ID, and are using IOS 9 or later, the Touch ID options illustrated below should appear when you attempt to open a safe. Similarly for Face ID on iOS 11 with an appropriate device.
To enable Touch ID/Face ID for a safe, select Touch ID Login/Face ID Login and supply the safe password, then touch Done. If the password is correct the password will be saved for later use in the Secure Enclave.
The next time you wish to use your safe, tap Login With Touch ID/Login with Face ID
If you wish to disable Touch ID/Face ID for a safe, disabling Touch ID Login/Face ID Login will remove the stored safe password.
You can disable Touch ID/Face ID for all safes (removing all associated Touch ID/Face ID safe passwords) by turning off Allow Touch ID Login/Allow Face ID Login in Settings.
Note also that if a safe password is changed on another device, Touch ID will fail to open the safe and the stored password will be removed.
