Settings: (v2.0.5)

Click the settings menu choice in the slide out menu to display options for using Biometrics (Facial or Finger print login), as well as Stay Logged In which will automatically log you in if the app is closed without logging out.   It's important to know that for security reasons, once you turn on "Stay Logged In" the app must be logged in one more time before it keeps you logged in.  If you choose "Logout" then the app will disable the "Stay Logged In" setting and require additional logins.
