MINNEAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mar. 31, 2016--
Securely logging in to mobile banking just got easier for U.S. Bank
customers with the release of an updated version of the U.S. Bank Mobile
app for iPhone®. The new app gives customers an option to use
Touch ID for faster, more convenient access to their money, combined
with the security of a unique fingerprint to login.
“We have been looking at ways to use biometrics such as voice and
fingerprint to authenticate identification for several years,” said
Gareth Gaston, executive vice president and head of omnichannel banking
at U.S. Bank. “Today we have critical mass. With more and more devices
using fingerprint as an option to unlock tablets and phones, customers
are not only comfortable with fingerprint login, they expect it. This
enhancement is one more way U.S. Bank is putting innovation and
technology to work for millions of customers.”
Touch ID is available for U.S. Bank customers using iPhone 5s and later
models. The feature will be available in future releases of the U.S.
Bank Mobile app for iPad and Android users.
Mobile deposits get an upgrade
In addition to Touch ID login, U.S. Bank customers will see improvement
in mobile check deposits. U.S. Bank customers were among the first to be
able to deposit checks from their mobile device five years ago. Updated
software in the U.S. Bank Mobile app makes it easier to get the right
image on the first try by enhancing image capture from various angles or
under low light conditions.
The updated U.S. Bank Mobile app for iPhone continues a steady stream of
new features that make mobile banking and payments more convenient and
secure for customers. Earlier this month, U.S. Bank enhanced
person-to-person mobile payments including a real-time option through
the clearXchange network. U.S. Bank was also one of the first banks to
launch Apple Pay, Samsung Pay and Android Pay making mobile payments
