CustomAndroidUI will not use device password to authenticate, here's why

See original GitHub issue

onSuccessWithManualPassword was intended to be used when the developer will manually maintain a separate app password. Which he will compare. So you would want to resolve(password) here,

but by doing so, the functionality of using password won’t be same between using and not using custom UI.

That’s up to your app to make clear, I guess.

Hey @shiv19, thanks for reporting this!

I always assumed that password entry widget of the custom UI was similar to the one on the default UI, but it turns out the custom UI relies on a custom password the user needs to configure for the app (instead of using the system-wide password).

For a number of reasons, I think the best solution is to just resolve(password). I’ve added this to the demo app and the readme.
