As mobile technology is progressing, increasingly higher number of services that were traditionally done ‘off-line’ are becoming digitized. This means that the need for security on this devices is increasing. This is especially true for the financial products which allow access to users’ funds on mobile devices. As a result, the manufacturers of these devices have taken measures to introduce security processes that reduce the risk of someone using a device or service that belongs to another person. If before this was done through cumbersome documents, passwords and safety questions, now the process has been simplified for the customers with the introduction of Biometrics. These use people’s unique physical characteristics like fingerprints, iris and face to offer more exact as well as more convenient products. This is exactly what Credence ID does. The company has combined the mobile and biometric technology to create products that offer “the best biometric processing and communication capabilities ever delivered on a mobile device.”
