Some of us would be pretty excited about a brave, new passwordless world. Gone would be the days of having to write down 27 passwords and post them beside monitor screens. Or having to yell them out loud to a colleague on the other side of the room.

For banks and other financial institutions, a world without passwords may not be the end-all-be-all scenario they exactly had in mind. They have realized that passwords, even with the aid of two-factor authentication, don’t do enough to protect sensitive client information from today’s digital threats.

Since then, they have been on the lookout for innovative ways to efficiently secure customer accounts. It didn’t take long for them to start considering biometrics—the measurement and analysis of a person’s unique characteristics.
