    have a pin code or finger print lock on the app so that no one else can access your emails if the phone is stolen!

    We should be able to set each email account that we have synced to the Outlook app to require a pin/password/fingerprint to view emails,calendar, etc

    I want to be able to put a safteycode on my mailapp so that it doesn't autamticaly open my mailbox. I use my mail for work, and don't want anyone to read my mail.

    a pin is a numeric sequence, usually 4 or more numbers, pattern is, a dial pad with dots that you connect 4 or more dots to create a pattern and a password is self explanatory.

    it would appear that outlook had an app lock feature in the past, that is now missing.

    the applock feature would simply be an additional security layer before you are able to access email.

    Been asking for an app pin or password for over 3 years now, that you need 2 enter, to open app (pin would be best, -for quicker access). Emails need 2 be secure, as allot of other password resets are sent through email.
    An Outlook App pin is so important, because if u let someone use your phone, or any other time the phone is unlocked ... email is vulnerable.

    Not talking about the Authenticator app (that's used 2 athent logins from other devices).
    ***Outlook App needs to lock automatically, once app is closed (for security)

    Authentication required to open app, PIN should be asked to open Outlook app, else emails can be easily read by other person by who got access to my mobile phones.

    The outlook app itself should have the option to be password protected, rather than having to protect the entire phone. I don't want to have to type in a secure password just to open a text message, but I would like to type in that password to open the outlook app and view work emails.

    pin, fingerprint & or password protected outlook app so that phones do not need to be password protected.

  • Bernard Wotherspoon commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Outlook needs a pass code restriction to stop users logging into other users accounts on the same device I'm surprised it has not been implemented already like onedrive with the pass code function I believe the same security standards should also apply to emails especially in a business environment where there is more than one account configured with in outlook

    the pin screen is short, cluttered with short/wide buttons and you have to push the confirm/enter button after you type your pin. make the number buttons normal shaped and get rid of the confirm/enter button
