You will soon be able to sign in to your banking app in the UK using Apple’s TouchID, as the Royal Bank of Scotland has announced that its apps will allow customers to sign in using their fingerprint.
RBS and NatWest, which are part of the same company will be updating their mobile banking applications to allow you to sign in using Apple’s TouchID.
The service will be available to owners of the iPhone 5S, iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, and instead of using a password to sign into the applications you will be able to use a fingerprint through TouchID.
The new fingerprint service on their banking applications will be available to 880,000 of their customers who are already using compatible iPhones and also their mobile banking apps.
We suspect that more banks in the UK will start to use Apple’s TouchID as a form of identification when a customer signs into their mobile banking applications.
