First time a major bank has used iris scanning tech.
Customers of British retail bank TSB will soon be able to access mobile banking by simply looking at their phone’s camera, marking the first time a major bank has opted for iris scanning biometric authentication.

From September, customers using a Galaxy S8 or S8+ phone will be able to use the Samsung Pass iris scanner to unlock the TSB banking app. It will first require users to register their biometric data within the app, which can then be used instead of traditional passwords and PIN numbers.
