Happy Lunar New Year from imToken team!

We are still working tirelessly for this new iteration, striving to release this new 2.2.1 version for you.

 

Some updates include:

  • Biometric verification feature: Send tokens using Face ID & fingerprint
  • Automatic discovery of collectibles: Find all your collectibles in imToken
  • Improved transaction notifications

 

Biometric Verification brings convenience while keeping security

One of the most fundamental functions of a wallet is transaction execution. We received a lot of feedback that having to manually input passwords for every transaction interrupts the user experience.

 

Now you can set both a strong, secure password and have the convenience of using Face ID and fingerprint on lower amount transactions.

Fingerprint and Face ID information is stored in your device’s secure environment

While confirming transactions with biometric verification your device verifies your input against the same secure environment that stores your passwords. When executing a transaction, your preset biometrics (fingerprint of facial) will decrypt the password to sign the transaction.

 

Please ensure to backup your passwords even if you have enabled the biometric verification feature, making sure you will be able reset your biometrics through your password at any point. Your password itself can be reset on reimporting your wallet with a Mnemonic Phrase or Private Key.

 

How to enable and a side-by-side comparison

Enable the biometric verification for each address.
