This guide steps you through how to configure ownCloud’s iOS App for iPhone and iPad. It covers security, theme, logging, and media upload settings.
To manage the settings in ownCloud’s iOS App for iPhone and iPad, click Settings in the bottom right-hand corner of the Accounts List view.
To protect access to the iOS app with a Passcode, enable Passcode Lock in the Setting’s Security section. You will then be prompted to enter, and repeat, a 4-digit Passcode. If a Passcode was set, the file provider extension in Files.app or in other third party apps will be locked too. The file provider presents a UI to unlock the Passcode.
When a Passcode is enabled, the app will be locked every time you change to another application. However, under, you can choose to only lock the application after 1, 5, or 30 minutes, instead of "immediately", which is the default.
After a Passcode has been created, a Biometrical Lock, or Touch ID, can also be used to gain access to the app. To enable it enable Touch ID in the Setting’s Security section, and then enter your 4-digit Passcode. The next time you need to authorise access to the app, you will be able to enter either your Passcode, or use your stored biometrical data.
