OCBC adds fingerprint authentication feature to its trading app

Nurdianah Md Nur | April 19, 2016
The bank also launched a mobile banking app for Android that allow customers instant fingerprint access to view their balances and transaction histories across their bank accounts, credit cards and investments.

The OCBC Group has integrated its OneTouch fingerprint authentication feature to its trading app, the iOCBC TradeMobile app for iPhones.

The move allows OCBC Securities customers to view their stock portfolio, in addition to their unrealised profit/loss and the balance in their trust accounts, at the touch of a finger. They will be able to view details such as the number of shares held for any stock in their portfolio, the average transacted price for the day and the latest market price of that stock.

To ensure a seamless user experience, the "Trade" buttons have been incorporated within the OneTouch Portfolio page, allowing customers to log in and immediately perform a trade after viewing market information on their stocks. This saves customers the hassle of having to return to the opening page of the app to log in, and then search for the relevant stock counter before placing the trade.

Besides the OneTouch function, the iOCBC TradeMobile app also host other features such as a customisable homepage, a dual language function that enables customers to view content in Chinese, and a comprehensive stock charting that allows customers to conveniently perform detailed technical analyses on stocks.

The new iOCBC TradeMobile app is now available for download for free on the Apple App Store. Customers using the iPhone 5s, 6, 6 Plus, 6s and 6s Plus models will be able to enjoy the OneTouch feature. OCBC Securities is working on a version of the new app for iPad and Android models, to be released later this year.

Following the positive customers response to the OCBC Mobile Banking app for iPhone, the bank recently launched the same app but for Android.

With the app, customers who own selected Samsung phones running on the Android 4.4 KitKat operating system or newer can enjoy instant fingerprint access to their balances for all their banking accounts, credit cards and investments, as well as credit card details such as rewards, due dates and credit limits. Compatible phones include the Samsung Galaxy S5 series, S6 series, S7 series, A5, A7, A8, Note 4, Note 5, Note Edge and Alpha.
