Didn't know where to put this..

Any plans to support face unlock on Android for those of us without fingerprint readers (Pixel 4)? Or at least a PIN to fall back on?

Hi, the implementation of such feature is on our roadmap. Since Google added the support of facial recognition on Android Q, we will be able to implement it in Authenticator. Contrary to Apple, Android had this feature available on a lot of devices but it wasn't part of the operating system but part of the manufacturer's software: Bixby on Samsung's devices for example. Knowing that, we weren't sure if the feature was fully secure and well integrated so we decided to stick to the fingerprint scanner which was supported by Android since the version 6.0 (Marshmallow).

Sounds like good news! Thanks Sebastien.
PIN code fallback?

Unfortunately, the PIN callback will only be available with the face unlock feature. The flow will be the same as the android device itself: if the face unlock cannot validate you, the PIN fallback will prompt and you’ll be able to use the app as usual.
