Following the news that Apple is bring biometrics to the iPhone X, Robin Tombs, CEO and founder at Yoti, whose biometric tech is used by partners such as the NSPCC provides an insight on this below.
Robin Tombs, CEO and Founder at Yoti:
“Today’s announcement from Apple reaffirms that tech companies are increasingly turning to biometrics to boost security – and it’s no surprise. Biometrics make it easier for people and businesses to know who they’re dealing with – proving identities using a face or fingerprint, instead of ID documents and passwords that are easily lost, stolen or forgotten. As more of our lives are spent online and connecting with businesses digitally, we need an easier and more secure way of proving our identity.”
“Yoti is available for both Apple and Android phones and helps people create one verified digital identity using their biometrics and a photo ID. It puts people in control of their data, enabling them to share what they want with whoever they want to instead of revealing their whole personal profile. Yoti makes it quicker, easier and safer to get things done and do the things you enjoy with your ID on your phone.”
