ADIB rolls out biometric authentication for ecommerce transactions

Friday 22 October 2021 12:35 CET | News

UAE-based Abu Dhabi Islamic Bank (ADIB) introduced the first biometric solution for ecommerce in the UAE in partnership with Visa.

ADIB enables customers to use their ADIB Mobile application biometric authentication to authenticate their ecommerce transactions. Biometric verification is an automated system that measures the physical characteristics of an individual to recognise his or her identity. 

VCAS with biometric authentication uses fingerprint and facial biometrics to mitigate security and fraud risks. It eliminates traditional verification methods, such as OTP requirements, making it difficult for intruders to use illegally obtained consumer credentials.

According to the press release, online security and fraud protection has gained more importance with the COVID-19 pandemic for ecommerce websites as more people started shopping online.
