RBS announces Apple Touch ID to replace username and password

Banks allow fingerprint access to accounts

RBS said it has introduced the Touch ID service following feedback from customers who asked for the technology to be included in their mobile banking app on its Ideas Bank website. The technology replaces passwords and passcodes on a mobile phone application.

From Thursday, individuals with an iPhone 5s, iPhone 6 and iPhone6 Plus will be able to use Apple’s Touch ID fingerprint sensor to check their finances, in what the bank claims is a first in Britain.
