USAA Bank among the first to take advantage of biometrics in Edge on Windows 10 Anniversary Update

Announced at Build 2016, Brian Roper demonstrated how website owners will be able to tap Windows Hello — Microsoft's retina and fingerprint biometric authentication system — to allow customers to access secure services.

The USAA Bank serves US military veterans and their families with competitive rates on insurance and other financial services. Using Microsoft Edge, USAA Banking customers will be able to log in using either fingerprints (such as certain versions of the Surface Pro 4 type cover) or retinal scans, seen on supporting laptops and the Lumia 950 series phones.

Microsoft are in the process of announcing an avalanche of updates and features to Windows 10 at their annual Build conference. For all the latest and greatest, keep your eyes affixed to our comprehensive topic page — Build 2016.
