US bank Wells Fargo has announced that it will pilot a voice, face and even eye-vein biometrics to authenticate mobile users of its Commercial Electronics Office (CEO) portal.The bank says that identifying customers' faces, voices, and mobile devices, biometric authentication will make it extremely difficult to spoof the true user.”Biometric technology is emerging and accelerating change in financial services,” said Danny Peltz, executive vice president and head of Treasury Management at Wells Fargo. “We continue to explore and test new safeguards for our business customers.”Currently, Wells Fargo is also testing another biometric authentication technology that scans the veins of smartphone users' eyes to verify their identity. This additional security will also be available to CEO Mobile iPhone app users in 2016.Based on the bank's research, Wells Fargo says it is the first US-based financial institution to pilot a fusion of voice and face biometrics to authenticate.Earlier this month, in an interview with Fortune, staff told the business magazine that the app will be launched to the general public as early as next year.Secil Watson, a Wells Fargo executive vice president and head of the bank's wholesale Internet services, told the magazine that New York City-based SpeechPro helped develop the mobile app. Andy Foote, a Wells Fargo vice president and strategist, told the magazine that customers felt more comfortable with the bank storing their biometric data in its own servers rather than their phones.He stressed that all that user data stored in Wells Fargo is encrypted and even padded with fake data. He also noted an upcoming application that would identify someone using video analytics for facial recognition, rather than a still.”Developers have found an algorithm that allows them to match lip movement to specific numbers,” said Foote as he explained how the system could recognize a person based on their voice and how it syncs up their mouth when they talk.
