Desjardins for iOS Updated with Touch ID for Logins

Buried beneath iPhone 7 keynote announcements was a major update to Desjardins for iOS. The mobile services app for iOS users finally received support for Touch ID to login, instead of using your username and password.

Most banking apps now support Touch ID (well, except for TD Canada Trust, smh) as an alternate login method, which takes advantage of Apple’s fingerprint sensor for instant authentication (iPhone 5s or newer), versus remembering complex passwords.

    Weird… I just tried with my Desjardins Visa Remises card and I’m still getting the usual message: “This Card Is Not Eligible for Apple Pay”.
