Love the app

I love the app but I don’t enjoy having to type in my login/password every time (despite setting up Face ID more than once?)

Developer Response ,

Hi Lindsay! Glad you’re loving Brightside to help you spend and save. We’ve recently fixed the bug for Face ID - simply update your app to the latest version, log in and head to your profile and settings. From there you can enable Face ID to log in with ease. Stay bright!

Would love this app even more if I didn’t have to receive a verification code every time I logged in to the app.

Developer Response ,

Hi sloughran, thank you for the feedback! Our Brightside Support team would be happy to look into this for you. You can contact them by emailing hi@hibrightside.ca. Stay bright.
