How do I set up Touch ID or Fingerprint Authentication?

Touch ID and Fingerprint Authentication on the OFW mobile app lets you bypass username and password authentication and login to your account using your fingerprint. This is an optional feature and is only available for devices that support fingerprint authentication.
