FINGERPRINT AUTHENTICATION IN MARSHMALLOW

         Buying stuff on Google Play is very easy now with Android 6.0 Marshmallow, because the new OS brings fingerprint authentication to quickly authorize purchases.

      Android 6.0 Marshmallow came with some neat features and one of the greatest highlights is the addition of fingerprint support personally I am(Ravi) saying thanks a lot for that feature. Its support is not just for securely unlocking a device or other functionality limited to the phone’s lock screen, it extends to the Google Play store as well.

     With the latest version of Google’s mobile operating system, users will be able to authorize Play Store purchases with their fingerprint. This new Google Play option significantly increases  convenience and security, while also helping users save time when they shop.

   The option is now live for fingerprint sensor-equipped handsets running Android 6.0 Marshmallow. In current market  only the new Nexus 6P and Nexus 5X support it.

    The fingerprint reader option is disabled by default, which means that users will have to specifically activate it in the Google Play store if they want to authenticate payments with their fingerprint. To do so, open the Google Play app and move to Settings > User Controls. The second option under User Controls is called Fingerprint Authentication and there we can find a box that you can tick on or off to activate or deactivate fingerprint authorization for purchases. To enable the option, check this Fingerprint Authentication box and we have to enter Google password when the Play Store prompts.
