Fingerprint Login Frequently Asked Questions
Is Fingerprint Login secure?
Fingerprint Login has the same high level security as all of our authentication methods for mobile banking. We use a range of security options such as real time fraud monitoring, secure encryption and 2 factor authentication. Read more about how we protect your money online.
A condition of use for Fingerprint Login is that only your fingerprint is registered to the device. Fingerprint Login will detect any fingerprint stored in the device, so it’s important just your fingerprints are registered.
As per your phone requirements, you will be required to password protect your device also.
How do I setup Fingerprint Login?
On the app sign in screen, enter your passcode and then choose 'Use Fingerprint'. Follow the screen prompts to complete the set up process (you must have fingerprint capability and a registered fingerprint on the device).
If you are new to the Suncorp Bank App or use your ID and Password, tap on the Menu inside of the app and then choose ‘Settings’. Select 'Fingerprint Login' and follow the prompts.
If you have anyone else's fingerprint stored on your device, delete their stored fingerprint before setting up Fingerprint Login.
You can then sign in using your fingerprint.
How do I login with my fingerprint?
When on the Fingerprint Login screen, tap ‘Fingerprint Login’, when your device Touch ID Authentication dialogue box appears, simply touch your finger to your device home button.
Can more than one person's fingerprint be registered to my app?
Suncorp Bank does not collect or store your fingerprint in any case. Your fingerprint is stored on your device when you set up your fingerprint enabled device.
Just like it is your responsibility to keep secure your online banking password and/or passcode, Fingerprint Login should be treated with the same level of security. This means that you must not have other people's fingerprint stored on your device if you would like to use this login option.
What if the App does not accept my fingerprint?
If the fingerprint does not work, you can revert to your existing password or Passcode to sign-in to the app. You can delete the fingerprint on the device and set it up again if you wish to use Fingerprint Login.
