Donald's Column: Save Even More Time Using Touch ID or Facial Recognition with the eTurns TrackStock App

If you’re like most of the world, you feel you have too many passwords, and too much trouble remembering which ones have a capital letter and which have a number. Password overload is yet another issue eTurns TrackStock can solve for you.

The eTurns TrackStock iPhone inventory replenishment app offers facial recognition or touch ID options – which means you don’t have to remember a login or password. All you need is a face or a thumb or finger.

And setting up either function takes minutes – but potentially saves lots of time down the road.

Since 2013, Apple iPhones have offered either touch ID or facial recognition capabilities, so if you have an iPhone, and have downloaded an eTurns app, that’s all you need.

Setting up either the touch ID or facial recognition features on iPhone is simple, and you can find complete instructions for doing either online, but, briefly, the steps are:.

  • Make sure your home button and your finger are clean and dry.
  • Tap Settings, Touch ID & Passcode, then enter your passcode.
  • Tap Add a Fingerprint.
  • Touch the Home button with your finger—but don't press. Hold it there until you feel a quick vibration, or until you're asked to lift your finger.

To set up Face ID:

  • Go to Settings > Face ID & Passcode. If asked, enter your passcode.
  • Tap Set Up Face ID. 
  • Holding your device in portrait orientation, position your face in front of your device, and tap Get Started.
  • Position your face inside the frame and gently move your head to complete the circle.
  • When you finish the first Face ID scan, tap Continue.
  • Gently move your head to complete the circle for a second time.
  • Tap Done.

Believe it or not, that’s the hard part.

Once you’ve activated either feature, you can use it every time you log in to your eTurns app.

When you log in, you’ll get a prompt, asking you to touch the home button to read your fingerprint or use your face to retrieve your credentials. If you’re using the touch ID, login simply by touching the purple fingerprint button next to the login button.

It’s that simple. From there you are on your way to saving still more time using the eTurns app to automate inventory tracking, ordering and replenishing with TrackStock.
