Microsoft has today updated their Outlook for iOS email application, bringing with it a range of new features to help make the app more usable, and secure.

One of the biggest new features is the addition of Touch ID fingerprint security, which allows you to protect your inbox with your fingerprint, in the same way you can do so with your lock screen.

Microsoft explains more about the update:

Everything looks better with images, right? That’s why we’ve just included the pictures of attendees below events in the agenda view. With just a glance, you can now get all the info you need. While we were at it, we also added a nice little shortcut in the day and 3-day views. Press and hold a time slot to create a new event. You can now protect your inbox with Touch ID and get the privacy you deserve. Keep your messages away from prying eyes by requiring your fingerprint or device passcode in order to access your Outlook account. To enable Touch ID, take a look at the app Settings under Preferences. (iOS 9 users) Your inbox – and dare we say it, the world – is now at your fingertips.
