aWHMCS Fingerprint Authentication

Greg shared this idea 3 years ago


I am an android user and I was interested in the Android app. However it has not been updated in well over a year. The reviews on it are pretty bad too with complaints about errors etc. I have decided not to install it due to the potential security implications of using outdated software.

It would be good if this app could be updated and then regularly maintained moving forward, even if it is purely periodic testing with a changelog update to let users know it is still maintained, safe and secure.

further to this the ability to use biometrics such as fingerprint scanners to log in would be very helpful while on the move. IT would also mean that passwords do not have to be transferred or synced nor would you need to worry about someone looking over your shoulder.

p.s. the reviews state that some kind of exdtra payment is required to use the app. If true, this should be removed, the app should be 100% free and unrestricted to everyone (so long as their WHMCS license is active)

Hi Greg,

The aWHMCS app uses the WHMCS API to communicate with your installation, so the security side of things is concentrated on your WHMCS installation. A number of features are available such as API Access Keys and a PIN number to protect access to your data should the phone fall in to the wrong hands.

But I certainly appreciate the suggestion for a fingerprint authentication method; I know I find that a convenient way to login on my phone.
