Accessing secure ressources in a cross platform project (v100.0)

I try to do a simple cross platform app that consumes secure resources onan arcgis online oragnization.

I use Authentication Manager in my shared project to access secure ressources. The UWP app automatically prompts the user to provide login/password info. It's pretty straightforward.

I thought it would act the same way on a Xamrin.Android app but id doesn't.

Am I wrong? 

I try to do a cross platform project (Xamarin.Forms), but Android project doesn't act the same way. It doesn't prompt the user for login/password. Do I have to handle it by defining a challenge handler (so a custom UI) to let the user enter his login/password)?

Why?

Thanks in advance for any clarification on this.

Will the upcoming toolkit make this easier?

Is there any other things to consider when developping a cross platform app ?
