Tangerine now has the first banking app in Canada to allow users to identify themselves with their just own eyes or voice, signaling a new era of biometric banking.

The iOS app allows a Tangerine customer to authenticate themselves with technology that comes from EyeVerify and VocalPassword by Nuance. The feature is currently up-and-running on Apple devices and is expected to be coming soon to the Android version of the banking app.

Some of the world's most forward-thinking banks and businesses are now exploring secure authentication tools that do away with issues that come with the use of passwords, such as theft or users simply being forgotten. As well as enhancing security, biometric login options have the ability to promise a more seamless user experience.
