PIN code by account? Is it possible?
« on: December 03, 2012, 10:49:06 pm »
Absolutely love this program.  Paid for Pro within the first few minutes.

In looking at all the set-up options, is it possible to set a PIN for each account?  I saw the global PIN for the ap, which works fine but I would like to have the option to set a PIN by account.  Perhaps it is there and I missed it.

I would like to be able to access the summary screen as is, with all the notifications, but when you try to enter the account, it would ask for a PIN if that option is turned on.  Same would happen if you tried to go to an email on a pin protected account directly from the "Notifications" page on Android home screen.

Look forward to more good stuff.

Are you looking to configure different accounts with different PIN codes, or perhaps only enable PIN codes for certain accounts?

Or keep the current scheme -- but allow the main screen to be accessible without unlocking?

Thanks for the quick reply.  It's a little of all of that.  Let's say I have 5 email accounts monitored by AM.

Have the main screen accessible without pin.  Access to accounts 1,2 and 3 work as current.

Accounts 4 and 5...from the main screen I can see the new messages and the message counts but when I tap them, the PIN code box comes up before access.

In the Smart Inbox, you can see the header info and summary for all accounts. However, if you tap a message inside a secure account, say account 5, then again, the PIN would be required.

Each account could have its own unique pin option or none at all.

I have two accounts that rarely get messages, but when they do, they need to be secure.  As it is now, I have to go through the PIN lock for all activity in AM when I really only need the security for a couple of accounts a few times a week.

Understand, thanks for the explanation. I'll add it to my todo list, but the list is long... :)

I confirm AM is a great app. Love it for handling several accounts differently and for its pin security feature.

Perhaps - if some more request are pending priority of this account pin feature would slightly increase ?  ;-)

I also would be very happy about this feature.
I even would like to hide some accounts and there mails from the main screen as long as the pin has not been entered. Like now just a dummy notification should come through.
A shortcut for entering the pin would be nice - perhaps long tap on homescreen head line .....

That would be really great - currently I'm using two different apps. GMX app without pin and AM with pin. Works - but is :-(

Have a happy new year.....
