Thanks Ignacio, hopefully it will be implemented soon.  I don’t think it’s 
unexpected in some communities for people using the app to be sharing their 
device with other friends / family if it’s a personal device.  I’m not familiar 
with the technical side of the application, do you know if the data on the 
device is encrypted at rest?

Hi Ed,

In the Current DHIS2 Apps there's no way to ask for the password in a 
per-session basis (nothing like a sign-out + sign-in without DB wipe). As far 
as I know, there are plans for this on the new app (at least we've already 
provided such a function in the new SDK) but regarding the new app roadmap I'm 
not the appropriate person to talk, so I leave Marta to complete my answer.

In the meanwhile, I would suggest protecting your device with a PIN, so only 
the authorized person can unblock the device.

I hope it helps.

Best regards

Is there any way to sign out of the Android application?  We’re wanting to use 
it to track highly sensitive patient level data in the field but can’t find a 
sign out option in the application.  I’m concerned that if a field worker loses 
a phone this is a serious security risk.  Am I missing something, or is there 
no way to sign out of the application without wiping the local data?  Is this a 
feature still planned for future?
