U.S. Bank Offers Mobile Banking Customers Touch ID
U.S. Bank customers now have access to Touch ID on their iPhones, which will allow them to access their bank accounts quickly and conveniently using their fingerprint.
“We have been looking at ways to use biometrics such as voice and fingerprint to authenticate identification for several years,” said Gareth Gaston, executive vice president and head of omnichannel banking at U.S. Bank. “Today we have critical mass. With more and more devices using fingerprint as an option to unlock tablets and phones, customers are not only comfortable with fingerprint login, they expect it.”
Currently, Touch ID is available on the iPhone 5s and later models, but U.S. Bank said the feature will be available in future releases for iPad and Android users.
U.S. Bank has also upgraded its mobile check deposit platform. The updated software makes it easier for customers to photograph the check from various angles or under low light conditions.
In early 2015, U.S. Bank updated its person-to-person mobile payment platform by enabling customers to make payments in real-time using the clearXchange network.
