Add passcode lock
If some one gets into your phone require a passcode to get into the actual DrexelOne application.
The PIN has been part of the Windows Phone app for several months now. Does anyone use it? There hasn’t been much call for this since the last round of comments.
I'll ask my friend who has a windows phone if he uses that feature
In the test implementation of this for Windows Phone, users can enable a PIN privacy feature (from Settings). When enabled, the user picks a numeric PIN (any length, but few digits are less secure and lots of digits is simply annoying).
Once enabled and set, the user is prompted for the PIN when trying to access functions in the "me" tab, including "notices," "academics," "co-op," and "balances."
The PIN is prompted for only once per use of the app. So, if you start the app and tap academics, you'll be prompted for the PIN. After viewing the academics info, there's no prompt when trying to access balances. If the user presses the Windows button (to leave the app) and then uses the Back button to return to it, he or she will be immediately prompted for the PIN since the balances page is still showing and that page requires PIN access.
Hopefully, the description made sense. The goal is to provide an extra optional layer of simple-to-use security that is as non-intrusive as possible. Let us know what you find as you use it.

I would LOVE to be able to use a PIN in luau of my password to log in. I obviously can't vouch for everyone, but the one issued to me is a royal pain in the *** to enter on a mobile keyboard.
Or you could reprompt for log in information on more sensitive material.
The whole app once I have logged in. I don't want to have to remember to log out every time I leave the app. I could forget to do so. Logging in and logging out to check my schedule a couple times a day seems trivial when all I could do was type in 4 numbers and have access to that info.
I dont want to come across as a pain, but I just believe the passcode lock would be easier for many people.
Would you want the passlock to be needed for all parts of the app or just the sensitive areas (like grades and financial stuff)?
You didn't really answer the question about why logging out isn't an OK work-around. If you want to protect your records, you can log out instead of just quitting the app.Then, when restarting the app, you'll need to log in again. Is this an OK alternative to a passcode?
It would just be an added security in the even that some one does get into your phone/ it gets compromised. Especially if you're adding more personal information like Financial information, etc.
