    Whenever I go to download a new app it sometimes asks for my password. I want it to just ask for my fingerprint instead only.

    I have a 26 character long password.

    It is set to fingerprint but it still asks for my password sometimes.

    Whenever you turn your iPad off, the next time you download an app it will ask for the password instead of your fingerprint.

    I think if it's more than 48 hours since the last purchase you are required to type your password. I am not completely sure though.

    I believe that is the case.
