Earlier today, Google unveiled its highly anticipated Android M update. One of the highlight features of Android M is the support for standardized fingerprint recognition, which Google says developers will be able to take advantage of via new APIs in the operating system.

Popular password vault app 1Password today posted a brief demo of its Android app taking advantage of the Android M fingerprint recognition feature.

In the short video embedded above you can see how the developers of the app will allow users to unlock the app by simply placing their finger on the fingerprint sensor. There’s no word on when the update will hit 1Password for Android, but it won’t be until Android M launches to the public later this year.
