Nigeria’s Diamond Bank has become the first African bank to launch a fingerprint recognition feature on its mobile app. The service, an iOS Touch ID, is a major leap for the African bank.
Diamond Mobile App users that have iOS devices can now login to their accounts with just their fingerprints as an alternative to entering a User ID and Password.
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.
