How to use Ionic Biometric Auth to Protect Your App [v5]


Securing your application with a JWT is sometimes not enough, and you want to make sure that your application shows another sort of protection after a specific time.

You usually see this behaviour in banking apps or password managers, where the app shows a lock screen after putting the app in the background or not using it for some time.


Therefore, we will implement a time based logout in this Quick Win where users can use biometric authentication (FaceID Touch) to enable the app functionality again.

The full quick win with snippets is only available to Ionic Academy members.
