HÀ NỘI — HSBC Bank (Vietnam) Ltd. (HSBC Vietnam) has officially launched Touch ID, a fingerprint recognition technology enabling corporate clients to easily and securely access their accounts to view account balances and recent transactions with the HSBCnet Mobile app.
Using fingerprint recognition instead of a password, it is intuitive and easy to set up, in addition to ensuring the digital banking is at its most secure. HSBC is one of the first banks in Việt Nam to offer this technology for its corporate customers.
Nguyễn Thị Mỹ Hạnh, head of Global Liquidity and Cash Management of HSBC Vietnam said, “At HSBC, we understand that our fast-moving clients require banking to be simpler, faster and safer. In 2015, we pledged to invest US$2.1 billion into digital transformation by 2020 and we are on track to achieve that goal.
“In Việt Nam, introducing Touch ID to HSBCnet is the latest step we have taken to provide our customers a more seamless and secure banking experience in this digital age.”
The Touch ID log-on facility, compatible with Apple mobile devices, is currently available for corporate clients of HSBC in Việt Nam. The function will allow clients to view account balances and recent transactions with greater convenience and safety, wherever they are in the world.
The launch of HSBC Vietnam’s Touch ID feature is also in line with the State Bank of Việt Nam’s call for financial service providers to apply the most advanced security technologies to customers.
HSBC’s introduction of Touch ID is part of the company’s long term digital development strategy. In late March, HSBC Việt Nam signed a cooperation agreement with Việt Nam’s Customers Department to launch e-customer payments that allow HSBC customers to experience a more convenient customs payments process online. This follows a partnership with the Department of Taxation to launch an online tax payment platform in December 2015. — VNS
