Tesco Bank enables Face ID functionality
Written by Anthony Strzalek
Tesco Bank has announced changes to its mobile banking app, which will allow iPhone X customers to log in and authenticate payments using Face ID.
To date, the bank has seen over one million customers register for the mobile app as their preferred method of accessing their account.
To use Face ID within the mobile banking app, customers must first ensure the functionality is enabled on their device. Customers can then turn on Face ID within the app by visiting the settings menu or during registration. At this point they will be prompted to provide either their passcode or password to confirm their decision.
Grant Bourbousson, digital and customer 2020 director at Tesco Bank, said: “We know customers love using our mobile banking app to quickly and easily manage their money. This addition illustrates our continued commitment to developing digital services that utilise the latest technologies available, and which really meet our customers’ needs. This is a simple, convenient and helpful development for Tesco Bank customers.”
