Hi. I’ve not yet found any posts on this topic. I’m concerned about securely adding a person and/or device. The concerns are:
A) Right now it seems too easy open the app and log in on several of my phones using my own credentials.
B) if/when someone either picks up my phone and adds them self to my home/account and gains control.
C) or hacks my password and gains control or otherwise change settings.
I’m thinking the following can be done similar to how Google and Microsoft detects logging in from an unknown phone/device:
Notify the existing users that someone has just logged in to my home/account from a new device, and allow existing users in my home/account to grant/deny permission to that person/device until someone approves it. It’s being paranoid, but understandably so.
Right now, I can easily open the app to do whatever, and I don’t have the option to set my home/account to prompt for credentials, password, pin, etc. While convenient for me to just pick up my phone and work with the app without any credentials or pin prompt, anyone could grab my phone without my knowledge, even for a few minutes, and make changes or add themselves, etc.
If there is an existing solution to this, please guide me. Otherwise, this seems like a priority feature to add, please. After all, it’s my home and my wireless locks to my front door we’re talking about.
(True, I realize I have the option to not have wireless locks, and I have the option to lock my phone(s) so anyone can’t pick up my phone and go into the app. But, the issues above exist, and would likely gain higher respect and trust by users and future customers.)
Thanks for reading.
