Probably. Meteor uses Cordova for mobile apps, so you can look for a cordova plugin that handles it.

I’m connecting a meteor/apollo back-end to a react-native app. So, i’m mainly wondering about the server-side authentication. I guess I need to research touchID more. I wonder if its more of an oauth flow like google/facebook, in which case I’d need to make a auth package I suppose.

Yeah, you probably get some sort of token that you can associate with the user, and then you can look at how the oauth packages do things and copy that.

I’m using the cordova-plugin-fingerprint-aio package in my Meteor/Cordova app (https://tyton.io).
