At Public, we take the security of our community extremely seriously, so we want to give you the best options to keep your account safe! On top of having a unique and strong password, one feature we recommend enabling is Biometric Authentication. With this enabled, you will have to unlock Public with fingerprint or facial ID, which keeps your account safe if you ever lose your phone!

To enable Biometric Authentication on the app:

  1. Select your Profile Icon in the top left corner

  2. Scroll down and select Account Settings in the bottom left

  3. Scroll down to Account and select Security Lock

  4. Click to enable Biometric Authentication / Security Lock

If you ever have questions, the team is always here for you, so feel free to give us a shout on the app’s Live Chat or via email at!
