Suncorp Bank Digital Banking Manager, Simon Clarke said the bank’s iOS customers asked for the feature and the bank had now delivered on its commitment to offer “fast, simple, and convenient mobile banking options, empowering our customers to bank when, where, and how they want.”
Fingerprint ID is available from Wednesday, 12 August on iPhone 5s, 6, 6 Plus, iPad Air 2 and iPad Mini 3.
Availability of the new app follows six mobile app releases by Suncorp in the past 12-months, including Australia’s first BillSplitter feature on a banking app.
“The integration of fingerprint identification simplifies the user experience by offering another option for our customers to access the Suncorp Bank Mobile Banking App quickly and securely, without the need to remember a password or continually enter a passcode.”
Clarke said Suncorp’s mobile app development team worked collaboratively with product, security, and marketing teams to bring the Fingerprint Login concept to life.
