Discover cardholders who have the iPhone X can now use the phone’s facial recognition technology to log into the mobile app with just a look. Discovers bank customers will also be able to use this technology to streamline mobile banking.

This upgrade in the app’s abilities is seen as a way to give consumers a more user-friendly experience. “The ease and security Face ID offers to our app users is an extension of our overall commitment to providing the best possible customer experience, whether that’s through our mobile app, by phone or on the web,” said Szabolcs Paldy, vice president of e-business for Discover.
“Face ID provides Discover customers with an added security convenience at sign-in that requires no more than a quick glance at their iPhone X,” he said.

The TrueDepth camera system is used in the design of the iPhone X, and it makes it possible for people to log into the Discover mobile app with just a look. The system also offers a streamlined and secure way to verify the identity of users.
