Customers can now use their fingerprint to do their e-banking transaction in Diamond Bank
DIAMOND Bank Plc, one of the leading retail banks in Nigeria, is now the first in the country to launch a fingerprint recognition feature on its Diamond Mobile App. 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 recognising and identifying their individual fingerprints.
The introduction of the Touch ID feature on Diamond Mobile App marks the entrance of the service to the Nigerian banking scene. It also consolidates Diamond Bank’s position as an innovative Bank that is progressively changing the face of banking in Nigeria with best-in-class customer-focused solutions.
The Touch ID feature on Diamond Mobile App is available on iPhone 5s, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 plus, iPad Air 2 and the iPad Mini 3. Other features on the Diamond Mobile App include funds transfer, bills payment, events ticket purchase, movie tickets purchase, online shopping wallet top-up as well as search, book and payment for both local and international flights. The service is currently available on Apple store and will soon be available on all other app stores.
Ayona Trimnell, divisional head, Corporate Communications of the Bank, said that the introduction of the unique feature would remove the burden of forgetting or having to remember the user ID and password for accountholders 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.”
She also said that with the “introduction of this innovative solution to the Nigerian banking space, Diamond Bank once again demonstrates its commitment to be at the forefront in offering technological solutions that make banking an exciting, convenient and secure experience for our customers.”
