Your email is personal and yours alone. You shouldn’t have to worry about other people accessing it on your iPhone. Fortunately, Outlook agrees and has provided you with a way to protect your messages with one of two keys that no one else has – your face or your fingerprints.
To be fair, neither of these two identifiers is infallible. Apple claims that its Touch ID system has a one in 50,000 chance of being cracked, while the “one in a million” probability of Face IDs is better, but doesn’t always work. But it’s another layer of security between the curious and your messaging if you tend to leave your iPhone open often or let friends and family play with it. Don’t tell anyone your access code, as it might still open Outlook, as you’ll see soon.
How To Lock Outlook for iPad with Touch ID or Face ID?
To lock Outlook for iPad or iPhone with Touch ID or Face ID
- Make sure that the Touch ID or Face ID function is enabled on your device.
- Open the Outlook application and go to Settings.
- Scroll down to the Settings section.
- Turn on the “Required Touch ID” button.
First make sure that Touch ID or Facebook is enabled on your device. If it is not, you can open the Settings application and go to Touch ID and Password. Then tap the Add Fingerprint option and follow the on-screen instructions to add your fingerprint. If your device does not support touch identification, you can add a facial identification. You can find similar options in the Settings application.
Once the addition is successful, you can open the Outlook application and press the Home button, which is visible before the text in the inbox. You can also drag the mouse from left to right to expand the menu. Then press the Settings button.
Now scroll down to the Settings section. Here you will find an option called “Require Touch ID”. Press the appropriate button to activate it.
If you’re using an iPad Pro, you’ll see the face ID instead of the touch ID. After powering on, you’ll see the following screen when you open the Outlook application.
For those who want to switch to Outlook to try the Touch ID extension, the Microsoft application supports other email services such as Yahoo! Mail, iCloud and Gmail. Other important updates in version 2.2.2 of the application introduce profile photos of event attendees in the Calendar view and a shortcut in the Day and 3 Day view that allows users to create a new event by simply pressing and holding the button.
