Logging in with Touch Authentication or Facial Recognition
If your Apple or Android mobile device has a fingerprint sensor or can support facial recognition and is operating on a supported OS version, you can log in using your fingerprint or your face. Only one fingerprint or face can be registered to an account. The encrypted fingerprint or facial recognition is stored on the mobile device only and is not available to any other service providers, including the mph.bank.
Caution: You must set up fingerprint authentication or facial recognition on your device before logging in.
Note: For iOS, refer to https://support.apple.com for information on setting up Touch ID or Face ID on your device and scanning a fingerprint or your face for the first time.
Note: For Android, refer to https://support.google.com/android/ for information on fingerprint authentication.
