Montgomery County Employees Federal Credit Union introduces Touch ID technology to enhance mobile banking services
DULUTH, GA (June 8, 2015) — Montgomery County Employees Federal Credit Union (MC EFCU) is working with Digital Insight, an NCR company, to offer members Touch ID functionality for its mobile banking applications. Using built-in, fingerprint-sensor technology, Touch ID allows members to log into their mobile banking application without entering traditional login credentials.
Touch ID gives MC EFCU members the convenience to access their finances in a more simple and secure way. MC EFCU is now offering members the ability to:
- Log into their mobile banking with the same level of access as if they had entered a valid username and password;
- Store their fingerprints on their mobile devices;
- Safeguard sensitive financial information as fingerprints are encrypted with a key that is only accessible to the device.
The new service is just one of many digital capabilities offered by the credit union for the convenience of members, and to ensure the safety and security of their financial information.
“We are excited to begin offering Touch ID for mobile banking, which is the latest addition in our availability of state-of-the-art technologies to benefit our members,” said Jim Norris, President and CEO of MC EFCU. “MC EFCU’s iPhone App, for example, has been rated number one among credit unions in Maryland. It is a priority for us to provide new technologies to our members, as we strive to provide more accessible and secure ways for them to handle their finances.”
Touch ID is accessed through the MC EFCU mobile banking app available for download through the App Store. It is available to members using one of the following devices: iPhone 5s running iOS 8 or higher, iPhone 6, and iPhone 6 Plus. It will be available for iPad Air 2 and iPad Mini 3 beginning in Fall 2015.
Montgomery County Employees Federal Credit Union primarily serves Montgomery County government employees, but in recent years, expanded its charter to be able to serve additional public sector employees, retirees and family members from other Montgomery County agencies, including Montgomery County Public Schools and Montgomery College. MC EFCU also provides an opportunity for membership to individuals who are supporting members of the non-profit ARC of Montgomery County, as well as other those who are affiliated with other select employer groups that are eligible for membership.
