Singapore’s OCBC banks integrate Touch ID into mobile apps


Mobile customers with OCBC Bank can now view their bank balance on their smartphones with a touch of the finger. This includes access to their bank accounts, cards and investment details. OCBC said its OneTouch service, launched on Tuesday (Mar 10), is the first such biometric service here.

“No other bank in Singapore unlocks a complete online view of a customer’s bank account, card and investment balances via fingerprint verification,” it said in a press release.

The bank said the new service will allow faster access to check bank balances of both assets and liabilities. Such checks make up about 60 per cent of all mobile banking transactions, OCBC added.

Using the Apple’s Touch ID technology, the service is only available for iOS 8 devices that incorporate Apple’s fingerprint sensors. This includes mobile devices such as the iPhone 5S, iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus.
