1Password IOS Touch ID - PIN - password changed?

Used to be that iOS 1Password required master password upon iPhone reboot or if the PIN was entered incorrectly. Regardless of the time since last opening 1Password, one always was given the pin unlock option.

Now with Touch ID enabled, fingerprint access is enabled only up until the time set in options after which master password is always required even if Touch ID is enabled.

Is this a security improvement or a bug?

    Hi @geckopelli

    Thanks for taking the time to write in.

    What do you have set for the 1Password > Settings > Advanced > Security > Require Master Password setting?

    Please let us know.

    I did not see that buried option - it must have snuck in with an update! Thanks!
