Will Touch ID become available for desktop version of mSecure, for new MacBook Pro users?

I'm a very long-term, happy user of mSecure (version 5 of course), and I use it constantly. It's an excellent resource that's only gotten better with time. 

Touch ID for mSecure works perfectly on iOS, but it would be great if that could also be made available for the desktop version.  I just upgraded to a new MacBook Pro running Catalina, and that includes a nifty touch-ID button not present on older models of MacBook Pro. The Touch ID button works perfectly for Apple related items, but there is nothing available presently for using Touch ID to open up mSecure. Is that on the horizon? I have a pretty secure main password, so it's annoying to have to constantly type it :)

Hi Steve,

mSecure 5 for Mac has had Touch ID available since Apple released the first MacBooks with the touch panel. To enable Touch ID on Mac:

  1. Open and unlock mSecure 5
  2. Click command+shift+S (mSecure 5 > Preferences)
  3. Click Security
  4. Enable Touch ID

Thanks! I apologize for the bother; I should have been able to figure this out, as it is quite straightforward, and of course, Touch ID works perfectly to open mSecure. 

mSecure keeps getting better and better.  Cheers.
