Would love to see Capitiec's iOS app catch up, since fingerprint technology have been part of their system for years..

Great move for them.

FNB are seriously slacking these days with app updates and supporting newer device features.

Yes, nice feature. Although STD should rather focus on more critical aspects, such as actual banking needs, good service, efficient branch service. Efficient online banking site where you can control more aspects of your accounts other than transacting only and making a few changes to contact details.

Problem with this bank is that they do not cater for the Windows Phone OS as their "Moving Forward" actually means "Moving Backwards". Mr Taljaard please smell the coffee and wake up. We will not be forced to use Android or iOs devices.:(

That will change with Windows 10 when you can just cross compile your Android/iOS project to Windows store.

No sure i like this.. if they using the iOS fingerprint match they need to realise that the account holder != phone fingerprint authoriser

You don't have to turn on TouchID for authentication.

Wouldn't that be the same as handing your bank PIN to someone else. Then it is your problem. I'm sure/hope they'd not use the default touch ID finger print, they'd have the app conduct additional touch ID which would require normal password login first.

What do you mean, do you even own an iPhone? TouchID stores finger prints, and whatever is stored is used to unlock the phone and can be used to unlock supported apps. You can't select a different finger print or specific finger print for an app unless you have a jailbroken device.

Yeah. Like they still don't have a read-only user account option for internet banking. So for businesses that need to give multiple employees access to check statements, they have to give them the primary login with full transaction permissions. Really silly and is a security risk.

No I do not own an iPhone. In that case it's a bit odd but still I would expect that people would be smart enough not to install a banking app on other people's phones or rather more likely when selling the device be sure it is reset first.
