What is biometric authentication and how do I set it up?

Biometric authentication lets you sign in to the Scotiabank app using fingerprint or face recognition instead of a password (on eligible devices).

To set up biometric authentication:

  1. From the app's Home screen, tap More
  2. Tap Privacy and security
  3. Tap Manage Touch ID (or fingerprint or Face ID, depending on your device) and follow the instructions
