Nordic credit card app first in Europe with Touch ID

Published October 30, 2014

With a simple touch, all re:member customers with an iPhone 5S or newer, can now log in to their re:member app to check their balance, their credit limit, stay on top of transactions, increase their credit limit, and transfer money to their own bank account. This is possible through the launch of Touch ID technology in the new re:member app in Norway and Sweden.

– We are proud to be able to offer the first credit card app with fingerprint login. This is a major step for us in our mission of offering customers smart payment and financing solutions. The app will not only be easier for our customers to use, but also safer than using a pin code, says Freddy Syversen, CEO of Entercard Group. 

Entercard specializes in credit cards and consumer loans, and re: member is Entercard’s own consumer brand.

The technology used in the new app is Touch ID, the secure fingerprint technology from Apple available on iPhone 5S, iPhone 6 and iPhone 6+. It is the same technology used by ApplePay. The implementation of Touch ID makes the app more secure since the customer logs in with biometrics instead of a four-digit passcode / PIN.

re:member is one of the largest independent brands that specialize in credit cards and consumer loans in the Nordics.
