Changing Safe Filter Settings Should Require Password
I have a young family and we have eero plus to activate safe filters. However, there is a loop hole. It is common for kids to know the passwords to their parents iphone and if they can get on our iphone where we have the eero app, they can go in and change the settings without us knowing. Even if you log out, they can have the verification code sent to that mobile device to log into the eero app. Please enable a feature that closes this loop hole - maybe in addition to the verification code, you have to enter a password (which the kids would not know).
There is a simple method in the iOS framework that allows you to use FaceID, Touch ID or Device Pin (isn that order) depending on the device. Something like this would be awesome protection.
eero dev team can pretty much copy/paste the code from Apple's online documentation and put it in the app delegate of the app. I would also recommend that you also consider putting it in the other methods for the app lifecycle, so that when the app returns from background it also ask for this local authentication.
From a dev perspective, possibly 1 story point worth of work for dev, and 1 for QA. Very easy to implement.
