Bank of Scotland customers will be able to open an account more quickly.

Lloyds Banking Group is following in the footsteps of HSBC and MasterCard by launching biometric selfie technology to Bank of Scotland customers. The idea is that customers will be able to more quickly open an account online through the ID verification technology on a web browser, smartphone or tablet.

At the start of the month MasterCard2 launched its own biometric authentication technology across Europe after a successful trial of the technology.

The service is now available for Bank of Scotland Classic retail customers who hold a UK passport or driving license and will be rolled out across Halifax and Lloyds Bank brands.
