Password to unlock mobile app

On the old YNAB 4 app, it would prompt for a passcode to open the app. I can't find a way to require this now other than logging out of the app?

  • Hi,  Orange Falcon . Right now, there isn't an option to set a passcode. We do have plans for that, though! 

    I'll share this with our design team and let them know it's something you'd like to see.

    • April at YNAB 8 months later, and this still hasn’t happened. Any idea when you guys will get around to this?

    • Hi Gold Memory !

      We don't have a road map for that particular feature. However, you can submit a Feature Request to let our development team know you're eagerly awaiting that option. They collect that feedback and use it to generate What’s Up Next! :)

  • +1 This is a big one. Please make this happen soon!

    • Hi Will !

      Since this post was published, we've changed the way we collect feature requests on the forum. If you fill out the Feature Request form, it goes directly to our development team to let them know exactly what you'd like to see going forward. :)

  • Hey everyone!

    I wanted to leave a quick link to our What’s Up Next page. If you take a look, you'll see that passcode authentication is now on the roster and coming soon! :)

  • Great. The sooner the better. Many of us have children that like to play games/activities on our phones. Obviously this type of information should be secured from being easily accessed by just anyone “using” the phone. 

    • Hi Khaki Tape ! Great news! Passcode Authentication for the iOS and Android apps went live earlier this month. You'll need to update your mobile app and follow the steps here to enable it!

      Let me know if you have any questions!

      Super quick response!  Glad to hear the feature was recently added. Did what you said and now my YNAB data is protected by Face ID. AMAZING!!!! Works great and is quickly accessible by the people that it is for. 👍👍Well done!
