The Chase Mobile banking application received an update this week, bringing support for many to use their smartphone’s built-in fingerprint reader to log into the app, instead of using a name and password. While this news will be glorious for quite a few, Chase details on the app listing that not all fingerprint readers are support, and users will need to be on Android 6.0+ to take advantage of the feature.
According to the changelog, logging in with your fingerprint is pretty much all you can do, and other features may require you to use a password for further account protection.
Go grab that update.
- Use fingerprint sign in to log in. Your device must use Android OS v6.0 (Marshmallow) or higher. Certain features will still require that you enter your password.
- Please note that due to different implementations of Android fingerprint by device manufacturers, this feature will not be available for all devices.
