Hardware authentication provider Yubico has announced its YubiKey Bio Series, the first from its portals to support fingerprint recognition for secure passwordless and second-factor logins.
Thanks to rising digital commerce and widespread retailer digitalisation, innovative payment solutions are now in the limelight – especially contactless payment. But this is not news to Australia, where nearly 47 percent of the population already uses cards or digital wallets.
Australians will soon be able to access digital government services online, including with the Australian Taxation Office, after proving their identity using face verification from biometric authentication company iProov.
With the claim of "cutting edge biometric and document verification", the Australian founded identify verification solution, greenID, has been seriously upgraded.
Biometric authentication is key to future payments in Australia, according to a new survey which reveals that nearly a fifth - or 17% - of Aussies are interested in using a microchip in their hands to make payments easier.
Digital rights organisation Electronic Frontiers Australia has urged Australians to do three things to protect their online privacy: get a password manager, review their Facebook settings and turn on two-factor authentication.
The message isn't getting through: almost nine out of ten people use the same password with multiple accounts.
Apple's newest biometric security feature, Face ID, has quickly been supported by Westpac with version 8.2 of its iOS app, but the Apple Pay delay continues its Groundhog Day.
The number of mobile payments authenticated by biometrics is expected to triple to nearly two billion globally this year, up from just over 600 million in 2016.
Voice and facial recognition is gaining ground as a major security measure, with more than 600 million mobile devices expected to be using the technology around the world by 2021, according to a new report by Juniper Research.
Smartphone enabled tap and go usage for transactions will take off in Australia over time, according to a senior partner from professional services firm Deloitte which has just released its study on the latest trends in the Australian mobile consumer market, including the growing shift to biometric smartphone security.
Biometrics might provide the trade-off between usability and security on mobile devices, with predictions that nearly a third of mobile users will use the technology by 2016.
