Description
Improved security when a biometric profile changes
iOS

When the biometric profile on a device changes (for example, the user adds a fingerprint), the biometric keys are invalidated. You can choose to authenticate the user first with the app password before setting up biometrics again.
Improvements to SecurityControl
iOS
Android
Improvements have been made to SecurityControl InitializationState (iOS/Android) to better handle deactivation.
Improvements to emulation detection rules
Android
Improvements have been made to emulation detection rules. This release also includes an enhanced update mechanism to retrieve the latest rules from the
BlackBerry
cloud.
Check for
Google Play
Protect
Android
The SDK will check if
Google Play
Protect is scanning apps on the device and will alert with the ThreatStatus API if the device doesn’t support this feature or if the user has disabled it.
Improvements to threat alerts
Android
Previously, ACTION_THREAT_STATE_NOTIFICATION created an alert whenever a threat scan was completed and at least one threat was detected. In this release, an alert is created only if a new threat is detected or if the status of a threat has changed.
