You can use your fingerprint to login to the Empower app. With Touch ID, you have a simple, secure way to access  Empower accounts using biometric fingerprint authentication technology. It's easy to update your Empower app on a Touch ID-enabled device.* You will be prompted to set up Touch ID (activation steps vary by device). No fingerprint reader? No problem. Set up a PIN for easy access to your account.

Biometric ID: 

- Members can use biometric authentication to log into the mobile banking app with their device’s biometric capabilities rather than using an online banking username and password. 

- The mobile app does not recognize the type of biometric authentication used; it simply receives the results from the device’s system. 

Biometric Enrollment: 

- When members launch the mobile app for the first time, they are prompted to enable biometric authentication. After selecting Turn on Biometric ID, your biometric authentication will be enabled. If the Not right now, option is selected, you can still enable Biometric ID with the app Settings. 

- Anyone who has access to the device through Biometric, such as face recognition or fingerprint, can log into the app. 

Disable Biometric ID: 

- You can disable the use of Biometric ID in the mobile app by navigating to Settings à Biometrics and toggle off the Use Biometric ID setting.
