Banco Nacional says it soon will be instituting facial recognition software for cell phone customers.
The customer’s face will serve as sort of a PIN number.
The bank said that it will establish a data base of customers that will be compared with the one seeking access to an account via a cell telephone. The customer’s cell telephone will take a selfie, which will be mathematically digitized. That information will be sent to the bank for comparison with the data base.
The bank said that makeup, haircuts or a beard will not impede identification.
