One of Nigeria’s leading commercial bank, Diamond Bank Plc, has announced the launch of a finger print recognition feature on its Mobile App, a first in Africa.
Divisional Head, Corporate Communications of the Bank, Ayona Trimnell, stated that the introduction of the unique feature will remove the burden of forgetting or having to remember the user ID and Password for account holders to login for their respective business transactions.
“We are pleased to announce the launch of the Touch ID feature on the Diamond Mobile App. This means that Diamond Mobile App users that have iOS devices can now login to their accounts with just their finger prints as an alternative to entering a User ID and Password.”
The service, an iOS Touch ID, is a fingerprint reader that allows users of the Mobile App an easy and seamless login to their accounts by simply recognizing and identifying their individual fingerprints.
The Touch ID feature on Diamond Mobile App is available on iPhone 5s, iPhone 6, iPhone 6plus, iPad Air 2 and the iPad Mini 3 devices.
The service is currently available on the Apple Appstore and will soon be available on all other app stores
