In the era of bring your own devices - it would be very helpful if the Ring Central mobile application had an optional PIN access option.  This allows those of us who may entertain a kid with our phone to keep information private.
In this context, it would be helpful for the App to still display number of messages or calls (or have an optional setting for this) but require a user selected pin number (if desired) to open the application.  Having said that - it would be helpful if IOS/Andriod could secure by pin number individual apps too.

When you say, "open the application" are you referring to bringing it up from not being the application showing as the active app on your phone at the time or are you referring to opening/starting the application from being closed?

If you mean the former, it would be extremely time consuming and awkward to enter a PIN every time I or other RC users make the app visible in order to make a call or otherwise use it.

If you mean the latter, the easiest way to do this is not with a PIN but by simply logging off. In order to open/start the application after that it would require the entry of your password.
