      Thanks Sunday for your response. There is not such particular Touch ID version for Android users, but you can have a finger print lock for your Android device, which is almost similar to Touch ID.

  2. That’s really cool to know. TuchID for iPhone or iPad is easy to use and setup. It’s hassle-free and handy. Hmm I doubt if all iPhone and iPad users know this stuff. Gonna share this to my friends.

    Anyway, this is useful I must say. If you’re in a hurry, you don’t need to type your password, all you need to do is to make sure your thumb is dry and press/touch you iPhone or iPad to unlock. Nice feature I must comment.
