bunq and Veridium Provide Biometric Authentication for Customers Using Hand Recognition

BOSTON – Nov. 16, 2016 – The innovative Dutch mobile-only bank bunq and leader in biometrics-based authentication solutions Veridium announce their partnership to provide customers with the most secure mobile banking experience.  bunq’s banking app will now use VeridiumID and its groundbreaking hand recognition software, 4 Fingers TouchlessID (4 Fingers). With their collaboration, Veridium and bunq present a world first in the financial sector to address consumers’ need for fast, easy-to-use and safe mobile banking.

With 4 Fingers we guarantee an easy-to-use and safe banking experience in which users have access to real-time data.”
