Iris recognition for phones, PCs and payments continues to gain more traction as the arrows NX F-02H launched by NTT DOCOMO is now incorporating CA-based Delta ID’s ActiveIRIS for biometric authentication.
The arrows NX F-02H is the second smartphone to include iris recognition technology, after a very successful introduction of this technology in ARROWS NX F-04G in May 2015, world’s first smartphone to have this capability.
Delta ID’s patent-pending ActiveIRIS makes the iris in our eyes a unique and secret “password” that we never have to remember. With ActiveIRIS technology, users can just look at their device to unlock it. Beyond the device unlock, NTT DOCOMO also uses iris recognition technology to authenticate mobile payments, and enable access to a range of online services.
The iris is widely accepted as a more secure and reliable modality to identify and authenticate people. The iris works for people across broader age groups, occupations. Additionally, the iris, being an internal organ, remains unaffected by external conditions.
Delta ID has made remarkable advances in making iris recognition technology ready for mass market consumer mobile devices and applications. Its ActiveIRIS® technology combines advanced software algorithm with simple, inexpensive, easy to integrate hardware to make iris recognition fast and reliable in conditions and scenarios where users typically use their mobile devices.
