DULUTH, Ga. (3/9/16)--Android users will soon be able to take advantage of fingerprint identification for mobile banking apps powered by Digital Insight.
“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 at 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.”
According to research by MagnifyMoney, eight of the 10 highest-ranking financial institutions with mobile banking apps were driven by Digital Insight.
Android Fingerprint ID, which is expected to be available in May, is one of Digital Insight’s biometrics-driven authentication features that include Apple Touch ID and EyeVerify’s EyePrintID. It will be available on any device that runs the Android 6.0 Marshmallow operating system and has a physical fingerprint sensor that supports the Android Fingerprint API.
