The Microsoft Authenticator iOS app updated today with added support for the optional App Lock feature found on Apple’s iPhone smartphones.

The App Lock feature basically allows users to lock an app for a set amount of time. Anyone trying to open the app during the set time period will be required to enter a pin code or a bio input such as a fingerprint.

Here’s the full release notes for this update:

We’ve expanded App Lock’s protection. Now when you turn on App Lock, you’ll need to provide your device passcode or biometric gesture when approving all notifications.
