Biometrics for Customer Onboarding

icons

The journey begins when customers enroll their fingerprint or face along with their official ID document at account opening. Biometrics strengthen security for Know Your Customer (KYC) checks, making it harder for unauthorized people to open accounts or impersonate customers.

Technologies like facial recognition cameras and fingerprint readers allow banks to onboard customers quickly and securely — whether in-branch or online. Biometrics eliminate friction points in the onboarding process, leading to higher conversion ratesbetter financial inclusion and an improved customer banking experience.

Real-world use case: Fingerprint readers offer easy enrollment and identity verification for banks in Argentina to prevent fraud and improve cost savings.     

Biometrics for Bank Employee Authentication

Nearly 50% of fraud schemes in banking and financial services are attributed to inside corruption. Therefore, it’s critical to have strong authentication for bank employee access.

Biometric authentication, using fingerprints or facial recognition, can be easily incorporated into a bank’s single sign-on (SSO) or multi-factor authentication (MFA) strategy to create robust, secure access for bank employees. 

Real-world use case: This federal credit union uses biometrics for employee authentication to ensure more secure, efficient access.

RFID Tags are small objects that contain a chip and an antenna for wireless identification of the objects they are attached to (or embedded in) with the help of an RFID reader. Unlike barcode technology, RFID tags do not require line of sight from the tag to the reader and support read/write functionality. Most RFID tags are passive, which means they work maintenance-free, without battery power, for many years. Read the HID Global Industrial RFID & BLE Tags: What to Use When white paper to see examples of distinct types of RFID tags.

There are 2 main types of RFID tags: “passive” and “active.”

  • Passive RFID tags are powered by a stationary or mobile RFID reader that emits an electromagnetic field. The tag’s antenna harvests energy from this field to release a signal to the reader. The frequency of the reader must match the frequency of the tag. For passive tags, there are low-, high- and ultra-high frequencies standardized (LF, HF, UHF). 
  • Active RFID tags use a battery to broadcast via BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy) or WiFi.

Some low frequency (LF) readers are designed to read only one tag at a time, e.g. the ID of a single cow, sheep or other livestock’s ear-tag. High Frequency (HF) and especially Ultra High Frequency (UHF) readers are designed to read multiple RFID tags concurrently, e.g. a stack of tagged books or a pallet of goods moving through a reader gate.
