Business owners know very well that our email attachments contain vast amounts of sensitive information.

Whether it's important pricing details or the latest mockups for a new product, we want to ensure our information remains safe and secure. While large thumbnails in the Cubes library make it easy for us to see important details at a glance, that same convenience makes it easy for snooping eyes to see them. Privacy matters to all of us here at Cubes, and I'm happy to announce that starting today all users can protect their Cubes account with Passcode Lock and Touch ID on their Apple devices.

Here's how to turn on Passcode Lock

First, ensure you have the latest version of the app. From the 'Settings' tab scroll down to see the 'Passcode Lock' option:

Next, select 'Turn Passcode On':

Enter and confirm your 4-digit passcode:

Finally, you can select the 'Unlock with Touch ID' button to enable fingerprint access to your Cubes:

It took me a few days to get used to having my Cubes under lockdown. I'd definitely recommend using it with Touch ID enabled. It ensures a swift unlock and stays true to our mission to provide information quickly and easily all the while protecting your sensitive data.

Give it a try and let us know what you think.

Update From January 31, 2017:
Passcode Lock Time Intervals

This is a nice little feature that helps cut down on unnecessary passcode requests, especially when you're switching back and forth between different apps. Instead of always asking for the passcode, you can now tell the app to ask you after 4 hours or as little as 1 minute. Personally, I like to keep mine set to 4 hours.

Give it try and let me know how it works for you.

Save time.
Stay focused.

Don't let searching through email distract you from work. See the files you need, when you need them. Focus on what matters most to you.

With all your files intelligently organized and at your finger tips, you'll never waste time again. Get started today!

Thousands of busy people save time and get more done everyday with Cubes.
