Good evening,

 

Now that Android has joined iOS in the world of fingerprint scanners will we likely see the implementation of this security technology added to the app?

This is definitely something our app team have been looking at @Enigmaraff. Great post by the way!

 

I've just started using the fingerprint scanner on a Samsung Galaxy, even to make some payments, so I'm looking forward to it being available in the Bankwest App. We'll definitely announce this in the Forum as well as our social channels.

 

We've actually just launched Bankwest Easy Alerts and once we launch PIN login (which isn't too far away), we'll be able to start looking more into fingerprint scanning options in the App.

I just had a quick look at the Nexus 6P @Enigmaraff - looks like a decent phone, even contender.

I love using the fingerprint scanner on my Samsung to unlock my phone @Jamesk811, so I think it would be an awesome feature too! I love knowing that no one else can access my phone without it! Smiley Happy What is it about the fingerprint scanner that you love?

Not just the security (which is probably the best feature) but also the convenience of logging in straight away without typing

@Jamesk811 The convenience is definitely one of my favourite things about it too! Also if I'm being totally honest, I also like how cool it is - it feels like something from a James Bond movie lol Smiley LOL
