Digital Insight has added Android fingerprint ID to its mobile banking application.
Digital Insight develops a range of online and mobile banking solutions for banks and credit unions. The Digital Insight mobile banking platform now features Android fingerprint ID, Apple Touch ID and EyeVerify’s EyePrint ID for biometric authentication.
“Biometrics offer a compelling feature for mobile banking applications, driving benefits for the end user as well as the financial institution,” said Dan Weis, senior product manager for Mobile Banking, Digital Insight. “We believe that consumers will want varying types of biometrics based on factors such as personal preference, their finger dexterity, their device preference, and even how they are dressed. Our introduction of Android Fingerprint Scan furthers our commitment to biometric authentication and continued top-of-the-line performance of the Digital Insight mobile banking app.”
Digital Insight expects that Android Fingerprint ID will available to all of its mobile banking clients in May on any device that runs the Android 6.0 Marshmallow operating system and has a physical fingerprint sensor that supports the Android Fingerprint API.
Adding biometric authentication functionality to mobile banking applications can help banks and credit unions reduce costs associated with password resets, lockouts and call center inquiries, and gives end users a fast and secure way to access their accounts via their mobile devices.
