Logging in just got easier and safer. With biometric login enabled on your device, logging into your online banking is as simple as a scan and you're in.

What's a biometic login?

With biometric authentication, your unique biological traits, such as your fingerprint or face, are used to confirm it's you accessing your account. It's like unlocking your phone with your fingerprint or face but for your bank account.

We highly recommend keeping this feature enabled if your device supports it. Depending on your device, you can use Touch ID, Face ID or fingerprint to log in securely.

Apple Pay and Google Pay users

You'll need to set up a biometric login, and a security code to use Apple Pay and Google Pay.
