This might be an offtopic question but does anyone know what we are supposed to use now for implementing biometrics in our apps? The fingerprint manager is deprecated along with its permission and the androidx.biometric lib is still alpha.

@Loránd I think your only option right now is to use the
BiometricPrompt
api and then whatever was before it on earlier platforms if you don't want to use the alpha biometric lib

I see thats unfortunate, what do you think would be the safest approach right now @czuckie? Deprecated api or alpha code in production?

I'm using the alpha in a production app
... so far, so good
but the earlier alpha just didn't work for me 😞
