Today Google updated Google Drive on iOS with a feature called Privacy Screen. It lets you lock the app with Face ID and Touch ID. Digital Trends notes:
The feature is activated each time you close the Drive app and reopen it and also locks files if you switch between Google Drive and another app, according to a Google spokesperson. You’ll have the option to turn this feature on and adjust its timing in Drive settings.
I personally would like Apple to let us lock every app with Face ID / Touch ID. Apps can clearly do this by themselves, but having it “baked” into the operating system is ideal.
App Store: Google Drive – Free
Today we’re looking at how iCloud Drive compares to the competition, specifically when it comes to storage tiers and pricing.
If you already use the Google Drive app you should already start seeing messages to download Backup and Sync.
Having issues with your Apple Watch, your iMac hinge, or your external drive? We summarily blame Bluetooth. And APFS. And we have a solution for that hinge that has nothing to do with radio frequencies. So there. Just press play and enjoy. We promise you’ll learn at least five new things.
Note: Apps that are locked with a password or Touch ID can’t be accessed within the Files app.
Google Drive already worked Files in iOS 11, but thanks to a fresh update it now fully supports the app’s interface.
Like iCloud, the app can back up your Mac’s desktop, documents, and photos.
