BMO Mobile Banking for iPhone has been updated today to add Touch ID support, making it one of the first big banks in Canada to do so.
What’s New in Version 4.2.2
Touch ID Sign In:
•You can now sign in using Touch ID for quick access to Mobile Banking. Compatible Devices for Touch ID Sign In: iPhone 5s, 6 and 6 Plus running iOS 8 or higher
Below is a screenshot of Touch ID Registration, where BMO makes you ‘confirm’ that only your fingerprints are stored on your iPhone. Since Touch ID will enable access to your bank account and make transfers and more, this is a disclaimer the bank is putting on customers.
As for now, let’s hope other big banks will follow with Touch ID support for sign-in.
