Standard Chartered Malaysia's recent  introduction of biometric login into its SC Mobile app makes it the first app in the country to use biometric security to access a complete suite of banking services, said the bank.

Key features of Touch Login include:
Enhanced mobile banking security - Touch Login uses fingerprints to verify identity, making it more secure than username and password logins.

Convenience - Through the SC Mobile app, clients using Touch Login can immediately access the Bank's full range of mobile banking services with a registered fingerprint in place of ID and password - from transferring money between accounts and checking transactions to paying credit card bills and sending electronic cashier's orders.

Available on both iOS and Android - Touch Login is available on selected Apple iOS devices with Touch ID sensors (iOS 9.0.2, iPhone 5S, iPad Air 2, Mini 3 and later releases) and Samsung Android devices with fingerprint sensors (Android version 5.1.1, Samsung S6, Samsung Note 5 and later releases).
