Should this be named something different? Biometrics? We have iOS with Face ID, and presumably Android vendors will follow, so it's not really all fingerprint, however I think people mostly know this as fingerprint....

I would also say biometrics. on UWP we have Windows Hello, which could basically be anything in the world... face from my surface, fingerprint from my laptop, DNA tester from my secret bunker running Windows IoT...

Maybe we name it biometrics and in the first version we only expose fingerprint.

Just adding a note here.... Android is actually calling their bits 'Biometrics' now too for what used to just support Fingerprint. I think this helps validate the API naming we had in mind.

As part of this feature, for security reasons, you should also be able to detect if a new Fingerprint or FaceID has been added.
Why? If you are using biometrics for authentication, and a new biometric fingerprint or face is added, the user should be required to confirm that new biometric option is valid for authentication in your app.
