PayPal App for iPhone Updated With Touch ID Support for Login

PayPal’s official iPhone app in the App Store has at last received support for Touch ID authentication, nearly two years following Apple’s debut of fingerprint scanning with the iPhone 5s’s fall 2013 introduction.

 Now that Touch ID has come to the rescue, this option, once enabled in settings, lets me authorize app access easily and securely with my fingerprint.

This is what Touch ID was created for, to protect sensitive personal information like online banking, PayPal transactions and so forth. I wish PayPal supported Touch ID much sooner but it’s better late than never, I guess.

To enable Touch ID, first log in to the PayPal app on your iPhone with your username and password. Then navigate to in-app settings and enable Touch ID under the Login section.

Like before, you can optionally flip the Remember Me switch on to have PayPal show your photo and name and provide access to login options on each run. I suggest enabling Touch ID and disabling Remember Me, for security purposes.
