Security: Finger Vein Technology for Bank BPH

Finger Vein Technology with Bank BPH

Bank BPH SA is the first bank in Europe to introduce customer authentication based on Hitachi Finger Vein biometrics into their branch network.

Since January 2013 all Bank BPH branch offices in Poland have been using Finger Vein biometrics as a main method of authentication. In total approx.1800 Finger Vein devices are implemented in the Bank BPH branch network. Thanks to this, thousands of clients have the opportunity to carry out banking transactions without showing any identity documents and without additional passwords or PIN numbers. The only thing they need to do is to declare their identity (by name and surname or PESEL number) and put their finger on the Finger Vein device in the Bank BPH branch. At the same time clients still keep the right to use traditional authentication.
