BMO Harris Bank, Chicago area’s second-biggest bank by deposits, has added Touch ID and Passcode options to its mobile banking app.
Touch ID will allow iPhone users to sign onto the bank’s mobile banking app using their fingerprint as a password.
Passcode is a numerical password which can be used by Android users to access the app quickly.
After signing in, customers will be allowed to view their balance and recent transactions, as well as use the bank’s mobile cash technology.
BMO Financial Group North American channel strategy & solutions for digital channels vice president Cesar Rainusso said: "BMO Harris Bank is dedicated to investing in technology that makes the digital banking experience quicker, easier and more secure for our customers.
"Recognizing that our customers already have many passwords to remember, the integration of Touch ID and Passcode simplifies the user experience and securely enhances our mobile banking app."
