3. Follow the instructions in the app

Secure the SecSign ID on your device.

You will secure the SecSign ID on your device with the next step. With IOS (Apple) the fingerprint/FaceID protection is automatically activated. For Android devices the app automatically chooses a PIN protection. You can change those predefined settings and for example choose a PIN protection for iOS devices or activate a fingerprint protection for Android devices.

If the PIN/password protection is activated, you are now prompted to provide a PIN/Password.

Important: the PIN is never transmitted or secured outside the mobile device. It is only used to protect your app and your SecSign ID on your mobile device.
If you have a custom app you cen define the mode of access protection that your users are allowed to use.
