Yapı Kredi Introduces Eyeprint ID for Mobile Logins

Payments , Banking

Yapı Kredi, the first national private bank of Turkey co-owned by Koç Holding, one of the biggest conglomerates of Turkey, and UniCredit, the largest banking group of Europe, is the first bank in Europe to use Eyeprint ID for mobile login, and the first bank across the globe to offer Eyeprint ID for mobile banking login and cardless cash withdrawals.

This milestone was achieved in partnership with Ölçsan and EyeVerify, the creator of Eyeprint ID. In 2015, Ölçsan signed an exclusive agreement to resell and distribute Eyeprint ID in Turkey, with non-exclusive distribution rights throughout Europe. Ölçsan has enabled Yapı Kredi to integrate Eyeprint ID, an eye-based mobile biometric software, into its mobile app. Now, with just a quick look, Yapı Kredi customers can access banking information and make transactions swiftly.

Yakup Dogan, Assistant General Manager, Yapı Kredi states: “With our latest mobile app update, we continue to push the boundaries of convenient mobile banking for our customers. Allowing our customers to access all banking transactions in the app with simple Eyeprint ID verification addresses two major shortcomings for mobile banking customers today: security and recalling passwords. From now on, our customers will be able to login to mobile banking via their smartphones using the Eyeprint capture technology, for a single-step, faster, easier and more secure access. In addition to the innovative Eyeprint ID feature, renewed Yapı Kredi Mobile also stands out with swift contactless money withdrawal from ATMs via QR code and direct access to the Call Center.”

Burak Sondal, General Manager of Ölçsan states: “Eyeprint ID provides an easy authentication solution to banks such as Yapı Kredi that want to improve the mobile user experience without compromising security. With 99.998% accuracy and speeds of less than a second, it is an easy choice for our clients.”

To access Eyeprint ID, users simply need to update their Yapı Kredi Mobile app.
