Android IRIS App 2.8: Selecting "Cancel" on fingerprint should not log user all the way out

All, I filed this on the IRIS Community board under their Bug reports for Android App. 2.8:

---------------------------------

2.8 App in general, including the fingerprint feature, works pretty well.  However, this is a minor annoyance in the fingerprint prompt.

I woke up my Android phone (Galaxy S6) and was given the IRIS App login screen with the fingerprint prompt since that's where I left the app. when I put the phone to sleep.  However, I wasn't planning on using the app. so I hit cancel which correctly closed down the app. but (in my opinion) incorrectly logged me out all the way.  The next login into the app. I had to re-enter my e-mail/password.  Closing down the app. and logging back in correctly invokes the fingerprint function from this point.

Suggest not logging out the user completely when selecting "Cancel" on the fingerprint verification step.

Yes the fingerprint function was not properly implemented by the Iris team.  It should be used to log into the account not open the app.  It is best to just disable it and move on.  The way they have it set up to only let you into the app is a pain in the ass and makes it pretty useless to me.

I haven't ever logged out of my app intentionally in the last 3 years, other than to test the fingerprint logon on iOS as that is the only fingerprint access right now.  I would much prefer it be used to prevent the app from being used if I give my unlocked phone to someone so I like your post were you suggested both sliders to enable either/none or both.
