KUALA LUMPUR, Jan 14 (Bernama) -- OCBC Bank (Malaysia) Bhd’s customers with an iPhone X, can now access their mobile banking application through facial biometrics, thanks to the introduction of the OCBC OneLook app.
It enables customers to simply look at their iPhone X to view their account and card balances, as well as the latest transactions. The iphone X includes the recently-launched iPhone XS, XS Max and XR models.
“The innovation is part of the bank’s broader digital banking journey and follows the earlier OCBC OneTouch fingerprint authentication.
“We are ever on the lookout for new ways to deliver a simpler, more secure and superior banking experience to our customers,” head of consumer financial services, Lim Wyson said in a statement.
He said by leveraging on Apple’s Face ID facial recognition technology, OCBC is enabling its customers to dispense with passwords or even fingerprints when doing their everyday banking on its mobile banking app.
They now only need to look, quite literally, at their iPhone X to get there, he added.
To access the feature, OCBC Mobile Banking customers need simply to tap on the OCBC OneLook icon on the app’s login screen and look at their phone to gain access.
To get started, customers must perform a one-time activation of the OCBC OneLook on the mobile banking app of their iPhone X with Apple’s Face ID running on the iOS12.1 operating system.
