ING adds fingerprint authentication to m-banking app

Tuesday 10 March 2015 | 10:36 CET | News
Dutch bank ING has added fingerprint recognition to its mobile banking app. This can be used initially to log in to the app and will be expanded by the summer to confirm payments. The feature is available for customers with an iOS device with Touch ID - the iPhone 5s, 6 and 6 Plus. ING said it's the first bank in the Netherlands to offer the service, after already launching fingerprint recognition in Belgium last November. Voice recognition was introduced last year on the mobile banking app. Around 2.1 million customers use the app, with around 2.2 million long-ins per day.
