An Android library that provides local PIN authentication for your application.

When your application is brought to the foreground, PinAuthentication will check if authentication is required. If so, it will automatically launch an Activity requiring the user to enter their PIN. A correct PIN will remove the Authentication Activity and return to the prior Activity for which it was started from.
