What is biometric approval?
You are your strongest password. Keep your accounts safe with your face. Biometric approval lets you authorise your business banking actions using the mobile app instead of a card reader. It uses your front camera to recognise the things that make your face unique, so we know it’s you. It'll feel a bit like using face recognition, but with enhanced tech in the background it's more secure.
You can use it when you're updating your details, making a payment over £1k in the app, and more. Check out the highlights below.
