Frequent United flyers may find themselves using the airline's Android app more often than they realize. The latest update cuts down on how often you have to type out your password as you sign in to your MileagePlus account. Now you can tap a fingerprint scanner instead.

The app notifies you of the addition following the update, but you can also find the feature under Settings. You can opt to scan when booking with miles or with money. And if you really want to protect your account, you can choose to always type in your password as well.
