Chase adds support for Android fingerprint logins

Written by Jaivik Shah

Hot on the heels of Bank of America’s latest Android app, Chase now supports Android’s fingerprint scanner as well. You’ll need Android 6.0 Marshmallow to use the feature, and the company also says that its app doesn’t support every Android phone with a fingerprint scanner (given the many different implementations out there, that makes sense). While your fingerprint will get you into Chase’s Android app, you’ll still have to plug in your password to access some features.

Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like Chase supports Android Pay yet, according to several posts on Reddit. That’s a particular shame, because it supported Google Wallet for years.
