The feature is currently available for Android devices. Users can independently choose to turn this feature on or off on demand. Additionally, imo is set to introduce the Passkeys feature, further cementing its position as a trailblazer in adopting state-of-the-art security technologies.

The imo platform also offers Device Management and Multi-Device Management features, allowing users to retain control over account access and usage, limiting it to trusted devices.
