Description

one possibility to easily increase security is to provide an option to log out the user automatically upon a certain amount of idleness. the option should be labeled "Automatic logout" or "Idle logout" and it should not (obviously) occur if the app is playing or streaming media. The options would be:

  • 5 minutes
  • 15 minutes
  • 1 hour
  • 24 hours
  • No Logout (default)

The default is the current behavior of not logging the user even if it's idle for a while.

I don't see a real need for this. Always typing the password is a pain and if there are concerns about the security just set a pin for the device. I don't see the need for an additional pin for the app.
