Abu Dhabi Islamic Bank launches app to enable fingerprint access

In a bid to ensure a hassle free transaction to its customers, Abu Dhabi Islamic Bank’s (ADIB) new mobile banking app has enabled fingerprint access to accounts.

Further, the app allows customers to withdraw cash without cards.

“Customers can also send money to a UAE mobile phone using the mobile to mobile payments functionality on the app,” said the bank, in its official communiqué.

The new additional security feature of the app enables the use of a Touch ID feature on iOS devices which allows customers to instantly access all services using their fingerprint.

In addition to this, customers can also temporarily freeze and unfreeze their debit cards, using the app.

Customers who own an Apple Watch can monitor their account balance, receive transaction alerts and directions to the nearest ADIB branch or ATM through the watch’s display.
