Banking with a Fingerprint: First Internet Bank Offers Touch ID to Access FinancesReleased on May 6, 2015
First Internet Bank, a premier provider of online banking services nationwide, announced it is providing Touch ID functionality for customers using its personal mobile banking application. Using built-in fingerprint-sensor technology, Touch ID is a simple, secure way for customers to log in to their mobile banking application in place of traditional login credentials.
Consumers who log in to their mobile banking with Touch ID will have the same level of access as if they had entered a valid username and password. Fingerprints are stored on a user’s device and never leave it. In addition, they are encrypted with a key that is only accessible to the device, overall offering a secure means to access sensitive financial information.
“First Internet Bank is a pioneer in digital banking, with a history of delivering innovative, customer-oriented banking services,” said David Becker, President and CEO of First Internet Bank. “Our customers have come to expect a rich digital banking experience from us. With speed and ease-of-use, Touch ID demonstrates our continued commitment to applying technology and practical design to meet our customers’ needs.”
Touch ID access is available to First Internet Bank customers running the Bank’s personal mobile banking app on iPhone 5s, iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. The Bank expects to extend the functionality to iPad Air 2 and iPad Mini 3 in the future.
