I am trying to find a solution to a problem for a friend of mine who is visually impaired. She uses her iphone 7 with Siri as she can't see the screen and I am trying to set her up to access her banking via the Barclays app (already installed and working) to then be activated by Siri (I know that this is possible.)
The trouble is that in order to use the Barclays app using Siri, you need to set up Touch ID so that the app can verify it's her. BUT, when TouchID is activated I understand that the passcode is also activated and this is a massive problem because she can't see the screen to enter the passcode. So she is then locked out pf her phone until someone else can unlock it again. Normally she has passcode and Touch ID disabled for this very reason - she needs to be able to access the phone without entering a passcode.
Has anyone found a way round this? Is there a way to disable the passcode feature but still use the Tocuh ID feature? Any help with this gratefully recieved!
