There's no pin/touchid/faceid protection
That's gotta be a bug, right???? You wouldn't intentionally not add such a crucial piece of functionality. And please don't tell me to just lock my phone - that's just laughable.
In this day and age of privacy worries you have all my entire financial world out in the open to anyone who happens to be looking at my phone (and it's not that unusual to pass a phone around amongst friends)
Hi Spring Green Deer !
This isn't a bug but a feature that isn't yet available (we're working on it, though!). If you log out of your YNAB account when you aren't using it, that will password protect your budget - as you'll need to re-enter your password in order to regain access. We mention logging out after each session in our Terms of Service, but we know added security never hurts! :)Reply
Logging out from the mobile app takes away the only (for me) usable part of the app - quick transaction entry. You must be the only financial company out there that is fighting its users on the most basics of mobile app safety and suggesting workarounds that are hardly helpful.
You might not considered it a bug, but I most certainly do - and a pretty bad one.Reply
Wow, while I may not agree with Spring Green Deer 's tone I absolutely agree with the point being made, haha.
The apps for both of my banks leverage my phone's fingerprint reader (I have a Pixel 2) and logging-out/logging-in every time I want to use the app absolutely removes any reason for me to have the mobile app; if I can't quickly check my budget balances and enter transactions what's the point?
Another point to bring up, as I'm sure I'm not the only person doing this, I use a Password Manager and because of that have a very long/complex password that I would need to look up every time I wanted to log in to the app, and actually takes some time to type in (more than a few seconds, which becomes very inconvenient).
Is this something you could provide some kind of ETA on (later this year, sometime next year, etc)?
