Security

Languages Deutsch

You prevent unauthorized access to your data by locking Finances after closing. The app then has to be unlocked using the device password or your fingerprint (Touch ID).

Do the following steps to automatically lock Finances after closing.

On macOS

  • Choose Finances → Preferences… → Security
  • Enable Lock on Exit

(Finances for Mac will not restore any previously openend windows if Lock on Exit is enabled.)

Hint: By enabling Lock on Exit, your data will not be encrypted. Only the access to your data through the Finances app is restricted. On macOS you can still access the unencrypted data in the database.

On iOS

  • Navigate to Settings → Security
  • Enable Lock on Exit

Hint: If the app is launched within 5 seconds of unlocking your device, you won’t be asked for your device password or fingerprint. After 5 seconds the app is locked again.
