“Our customers are consistently seeking a better experience and more convenience when accessing their bank accounts via mobile devices and we are constantly looking at ways to deliver this,” Mr Lock said.


“Fingerprint logon offers the same high level security as all authentication methods for Internet and Mobile Banking and we’re excited to provide instant access to banking for customers via this feature.”


To use the app, users need to ensure their devices are operating on Apple iOS version 9 or above, or Android 6 or above and supports fingerprint identification.
