Chase has added Touch ID authentication for iPhones (5s, 6 and 6 plus), becoming one of the first U.S. banks to offer the feature. Chase also plans to offer a fingerprint authentication for the Chase Mobile App for Android later this year.
Touch ID uses a customer’s fingerprint as another quick, convenient and secure way for customers to log in to the Chase Mobile app for iPhone. To complete secure transactions, such as Chase QuickPay, customers will enter their passwords for additional authentication.
In 2014, Chase released the redesigned Chase Mobile app for iPhone and Android.
Other new highlights include:
• Chase QuickPay via mobile devices was up 80% in 2014
• Chase QuickDeposit℠ – depositing checks by taking a picture with a mobile device – was done 45 million times last year
• Chase is now part of the clearXchange network, which makes it easier for Chase customers to send and receive money to more than 100 million customers from other banks
The Touch ID feature is also available on the J.P. Morgan app for iPhone.
