Face, Touch, Voice. The Future of Mobile Banking is Here!
Honor Credit Union Unveils Exciting Update to its Mobile App
This morning I opened my mobile banking app just by staring at my phone. I didn’t enter any passwords or answer a list of security questions. I didn’t even have to put on makeup to be recognized by my financial institution, all I had to do was blink…and I was in. This is the future of mobile banking and Honor Credit Union is excited to bring it to you with our new mobile app upgrade!
Want a more convenient way to access your financial information? Starting today, February 13th, your experience with mobile banking just got a whole lot easier. Utilizing the latest biometric technology, the Honor Mobile App now provides the following authentication methods: voice recognition, 4-digit PIN, fingerprint, and face recognition. Simply choose the option that works best for you, and you’ll be on your way to a faster banking experience.
So, how does it all work?
Voice Recognition – Record and submit a passphrase which you will then repeat into the phone to authenticate anytime you want to access your account.
Fingerprint – Utilizing the established fingerprint verification feature on your mobile device, place your finger on the device’s sensor to unlock your account.
Face Recognition – Center your face within the circle and blink, and the mobile app will authenticate your identity and let you start managing your finances.
Are you ready to take advantage of these new features?
You will need iOS 9.0 or later for iPhone and Version 4.4 or later for Android. To utilize fingerprint, your mobile device will also need to have the capability for fingerprint scan. Additionally, the mobile app will need access to your camera and microphone for face and voice recognition. Prior to using any of the convenience options, members will need to authenticate with their existing username, password, and security questions.
If you currently use our mobile app, an update will be released to your app store on February 13. To take advantage of these new biometric features, simply update your app. From there you will be given the option to select your authentication method of choice.
It’s important to note that you will always be given the option to authenticate using your traditional username and password. We are simply adding these four additional biometric authentication features for your convenience.
At Honor, we are committed to the continuous improvement of our member experience. Our new biometric authentication features are just another way we provide solutions for financial success with simple experience and smart advice!
