Instead of the usual MPIN.

ICYDK, mobile wallet GCash lets users unlock their app via biometrics login that uses fingerprint scan or Face ID technology. By default, the app asks for a four-digit security MPIN. If you're in public though, you may need to hide it to prevent others from snatching your passcode.
