With a delay of more than two years, the Brazilian bank Ita├║ finally decided to start using one of the safest features of the iPhone: the fingerprint sensor Touch ID, which makes it easier for customers to access your account. But for now, the test does not cover the application of internet banking.

This week, the app tokpag (weÔÇÖve talked about it here) received an update compatible with Touch ID. Now, the bank customer who wants to make transfers no longer needs to enter the password every time they use the application, just touch the deviceÔÇÖs digital sensor.

It is clear that the user has the option to activate or deactivate the function, if he is not comfortable with it. However, other financial applications such as Nubank, Sicoob, Bradesco and Banco do Brasil have long used Touch ID, making their usersÔÇÖ lives easier. It is incomprehensible for a bank to take so long to adopt this solution, as is the case with Ita├║ and Santander.

It is not yet possible to access Ita├║ÔÇÖs bank account using Touch ID, but we hope that our ear tug make the bank move and put that away. After all, an institution that calls itself ÔÇťdigitalÔÇŁIn all its advertisements, it cannot take 2 years to offer a simple functionality that most competitors have already adopted.
