5 Android Phones with Fingerprint Online BankingPublished: April 26th, 2017
First introduced on our mobile banking iPhone apps, fingerprint login has been a feature on our Android apps for almost as long. In the beginning, this feature was limited to only newer phones, but today most Android phones have fingerprint sensors as a base feature. To set fingerprint login as your default login method, select Use Fingerprint Sign In at the bottom of the main page of your phone app.
Below is a list of the top 5 Android phones that use this technology and are readily available at most cell phone stores.
- Samsung Galaxy S7, S7 Edge (Coming soon S8)
- LG G6, G5 & V20
- Google Pixel & Google Pixel XL
- HTC 10, HTC U Ultra
- Sony Xperia XZ
Several other Android manufacturers now include fingerprint scanners as well. Consult your manual for information on your specific brand. This feature also requires Android Version 6 (Marshmallow) or newer.
Who knows what the future may hold for mobile banking login — voice recognition, retina scanning or location based login, all seem like technologies right around the corner. SOCU employees want to make banking away from our branches easier than ever and we are always looking at the latest and greatest technology available to make your experiences even better.
