Win­ners of HSBC Malta Touch ID launch com­pe­ti­tion an­nounced

The Malta Business Weekly - - FRONT PAGE -

HSBC Malta was the first lo­cal bank to launch bio­met­ric tech­nol­ogy for cus­tomers with an iPhone 5s or higher. As part of the cel­e­bra­tions linked to the in­tro­duc­tion of this new fea­ture, cus­tomers ac­cess­ing ei­ther the iOS or An­droid HSBC mo­bile app were given the chance to win an iPhone X or one of two iPhone 8.

The win­ners are Clay­ton Said who won a brand new iPhone X and Char­maine Far­ru­gia and Kevin Crock­ford who walked away with an iPhone 8 each.

The com­pe­ti­tion drew a sig­nif­i­cant num­ber of en­tries fol­low­ing the bank’s an­nounce­ments that all its cus­tomers in Malta can now ben­e­fit from Touch ID to gain safe and con­ve­nient ac­cess to their ac­counts us­ing the HSBC mo­bile app.

Daniel Robin­son, Head of Re­tail Bank­ing and Wealth Man­age­ment at HSBC Malta, said: “The im­pres­sive num­ber of en­tries in the com­pe­ti­tion re­in­forced our view that cus­tomers are ready for a change in the way they use bank­ing ser­vices. By be­ing the first ma­jor bank in Malta to in­tro­duce the Touch ID and Face ID fea­tures, HSBC has once again sig­nalled its com­mit­ment to make mod­ern bank­ing in Malta as ac­ces­si­ble as pos­si­ble.”

The Touch ID fea­ture re­lies on a recog­nised fin­ger­print in­stead of pass­words and is quick and easy to set up. The ser­vice is now avail­able for all HSBC mo­bile bank­ing users of iPhone 5s or higher, as well as busi­ness cus­tomers us­ing the HSBCnet mo­bile app. Cus­tomers of HSBC mo­bile app and HSBCnet mo­bile app us­ing an iPhone X can also use Face ID to ac­cess their ac­counts.

Clay­ton Said com­mented: “I would have never imag­ined that thanks to log­ging on to HSBC’s Mo­bile Bank­ing App, I could win an iPhone. How­ever, the big­gest pos­i­tive is that now my unique per­sonal fea­ture, in this case my face, is now al­low­ing me to ac­cess my HSBC ac­counts eas­ily, se­curely and swiftly. Thank you, HSBC.” More in­for­ma­tion about HSBC Malta’s bank­ing in­no­va­tions can be ob­tained by vis­it­ing hsbc.com.mt or by call­ing 2380 2380.
