QIB uses fa­cial recog­ni­tion tech­nol­ogy

Banking Frontiers - - Banking In The Gulf -

Qatar Is­lamic Bank has in­tro­duced fa­cial recog­ni­tion ca­pa­bil­i­ties. Called Face ID, this is the bank’s iOS and An­droid mo­bile app, and it makes Bank in Qatar the first bank in the coun­try to in­tro­duce fa­cial recog­ni­tion tech­nol­ogy fea­ture on all smart­phone de­vices. In­stead of cus­tomers log­ging into their ac­counts with their user­name and pass­word each time they open the QIB Mo­bile App, they can now use their Face ID to lo­gin in a sim­ple and se­cured man­ner. Us­ing the bio­met­ric au­then­ti­ca­tion op­tion, QIB cus­tomers can lo­gin to their mo­bile bank­ing app, to man­age their ac­counts, make pay­ments and trans­fers, have full con­trol on their cards, re­quest a cheque book, or even open a new fixed de­posit ac­count, among other bank­ing trans­ac­tions. The bank is now up­grad­ing its mo­bile app, and this is part of the plan. D Anand, the bank’s gen­eral man­ager, Per­sonal Bank­ing Group, said since the in­tro­duc­tion of the fin­ger­print lo­gin op­tion in the up­graded Mo­bile App, thou­sands of the bank’s cus­tomers use it ev­ery day. Ex­tend­ing that func­tion­al­ity to fa­cial recog­ni­tion tech­nol­ogy is part of the bank’s on­go­ing com­mit­ment to pro­vide a bet­ter and up-to-the-minute bank­ing ex­pe­ri­ence to the cus­tomers through easy and se­cure fea­tures, he added.
