This documentation is valid for:
Number of seconds after which biometric authentication will be required again; if zero, the user's credentials will be asked every time.


It represents the validity time that the authentication will have. During this period, the user's session will remain active, and the credentials will not be requested again. Once the time indicated in this property has expired, the user will be asked to enter his/her data again.

The time will start counting from the moment the application goes to the background.

If the application is deleted by the operating system, when the application is reopened, the user will be asked to enter his/her data again. In this case, the period of time that the application was in background mode will not be taken into account.
