CU*Answers to begin launching biometric authentication to credit union mobile apps starting February 1st

GRAND RAPIDS, MI (January 5, 2018) — CU*Answers recently announced that its Internet Retailer Support Center (IRSC) and Web & Mobile Developer teams will begin launching MACO (Multiple Authentication Convenience Options) to credit union mobile apps on February 1st. Using DAON biometric authentication, members can access their membership from their credit union mobile app by using face recognition, voice recognition, fingerprint, or pin, adding to the traditional username and password.

“MACO helps credit unions offer their members convenience when signing into their mobile app, and using this type of convenience within credit union mobile apps will be just the beginning on where this type of software can be used,” says Kristian Daniel, IRSC account executive.

Credit unions can obtain further information by visiting the IRSC online store.
