If you want your email inbox to be totally secure, it’s time to switch to Microsoft Outlook. With the latest update, which is available to download now from the App Store, Outlook supports Touch ID, so only you can get into it and read your messages.

Outlook is by far the biggest mail client on iOS to offer Touch ID support, providing users with an extra layer of protection. This means that if someone does manage to get hold of your device while it’s unlocked, they still won’t have access to your inbox without your fingerprint.

This is incredibly useful for those who send and receive confidential documents, or just don’t want friends and family snooping through their business. It’s even more important in Outlook, which also carries a calendar, contacts list, and files.

You can enable Touch ID by tapping the “Settings” tab in the Outlook app, then tapping the “Require Touch ID” toggle. You will then be asked for your fingerprint the next time you open the app.

Version 2.2.2 of the Outlook app also adds the ability to view profile photos of event attendees in the agenda view, and a new shortcut in the day and three-day calendar views that lets you add a new event simply by tapping and holding a time slot.

You can download the latest version of Outlook for iOS now by following the source link below.
