‘Watch’ This: First Internet Bank Offers Smartwatch CapabilitiesReleased on July 5, 2016
First Internet Bank today announced it has enhanced its mobile app to include smartwatch capabilities. Customers with an Apple Watch or Android Wear device are able to conveniently and securely access account information through their smartwatch, without logging in.
“First Internet Bank was built from the start to serve customers in the digital age, and offering innovative services like smartwatch banking is just the latest in our cache of customer-centric banking solutions,” said David Becker, president and CEO of First Internet Bank. “The convenience of the biometric authentication tools like Touch ID and Eyeprint ID that we already offer, and now the addition of smartwatch functionality, makes it even easier for our customers to access their accounts.”
The smartwatch feature allows customers with a wearable device, paired with their phone, to securely and conveniently view their balances and transactions from their watch. Smartwatch functionality is immediately available through the First IB personal banking mobile app, along with other new features included in these enhancements.
