As criminals become more sophisticated, biometric authentication is the safest way to prove your identity and pay.
In a digital age, it is getting increasingly hard to make sure that you and you alone have access to the hard-earned cash in your bank account.
There are three common factors used to prove an individual is who they say they are. These authentication factors are:
- Something you know (like a PIN, or password)
- Something you have (like a smart card, or mobile phone)
- Something you are (biometric data, like iris, face or finger vein pattern)
