Setting File Options with a script or saving the Account Name only for login?

Post

     When a user has to re-authenticate on Filemaker Go after hibernation, is there a way to save the Account Name, and only require re-authenticating with a password?  Bank Apps allow you to "save username" to add convenience without sacrificing too much security.

     I recall this being possible in FIlemaker Go 11, but can't find it in Go 13.

     I don't want to remove security altogether, but I also want to make it easier to re-access the DB after hibernation.

     Another potential solution, but I have no idea how to achieve it....I would be willing to remove Filemaker security if there was a Get function that can tell if the iPad or iPhone has a Passcode enabled.  It would be great to set reauthentication settings to OFF when a Passcode on the iPad itself is detected.

     Any ideas?  Thanks
