Would be good to have fingerprint access for this app for Android like other apps do.. So no one can read or access your email without your fingerprint or pattern

Its safer to have a lock on outlook like ones banking app because most email are confidential e.g like transaction made you get email notification from the bank. And other private emails. Here is the key thing if someone can gain access to my phone my privacy is compromise. E.g can I use your phone to call? Instead of calling they are going through you emails because it has no passcode or biometric. I will be wonderful to have such a feature on outlook thank you.
It's an email app, stores sensitive information. Must enable the fingerprint security feature

My idea is simple enough. Use the biometric scanner / fingerprint identification scanner to authentic access to the outlook app.
I've had a situation today where I've needed to enter my password and pin three times just to reauthorize access.
The outlook app is really behind the curve on this front. Even the password entry control is so outdated, it doesn't allow you reveal what you've typed by pressing a reveal glyph. That's a throwback to the days before touch screens ala the 90s.
Also the Two Factor Authentication sends a pin but the app doesn't intercept it and just enter it itself. Switching to the SMS App causes the Outlook app to refresh the login dialog and require the password again and sends a new pin sms etc etc ad infinitum.
Modernise the login authentication please.

Oh my goodness please do this. I recently switched from apple to a pixel 4, and I was very shocked when I realized facial recognition is not supported for this App. I'm barely using the app because of this.
Even Whatsapp does it so.

for privacy and protection
Increase Security (open only if fingerprint match)
The Outlook app is always open and anyone who has access to your phone has access to your mails. An in-app security can be developed such that you lock this app with either fingerprint or code and with this, restrict access and protect your personal mails.

like iOS, Android app should also have fingerprint authentication while opening the app.

This would be a great feature. Why doesn't Android have this already?
