Automatically show Touch ID dialog when coming to focus

On MacOS MacBook pro with Touch ID enabled.

When the application starts up it pops up a dialog where you can quickly unlock with the fingerprint reader. This is great.

However if you leave MSecure open and come back to it later, the unlock screen does not show this dialog automatically, and you have to press the fingerprint icon at the bottom right first.  Please:

  • Add a keyboard shortcut to bring the Touch ID dialog up (maybe there is one but I can't find it documented anywhere)
  • Automatically show the dialog when the application comes to focus.  You can implement NSApplicationDelegate method applicationDIdBecomeActive: to detect this situation.

I note there is a ⌘-T shortcut for "Show Touch ID" in the View menu (not sure when it appeared, maybe it was always there and I just never noticed it), so this can be marked as implemented.

Hi Steven,

Thank you for contacting us about this. I had actually forgotten there was a shortcut for the Touch ID unlock, so thank you for the reminder =)  I know we have looked into making it possible to show the Touch ID dialog when focusing the app instead of it only happening when the app is opened from scratch, but we weren't able to find a solution. The problem has been that MacOS didn't give us a distinguishing event for when the app was focused. I believe there is a focus event, but it couldn't be used for this purpose. I'm going to talk to the developer again about this in our next meeting, and if we can come up with some idea for a solution, we will get it on the feature request list.
