How to set up Touch ID with mobile banking on an iPhone or iPad

Touch ID allows you to log in using Apple’s Touch ID instead of your login ID and password. By enrolling in this feature you will be prompted to place your registered fingerprint on the Touch ID sensor on your Apple device.

Apple Touch ID must be set up on your device before you can use it with our mobile banking app (including setting a passcode for your device). Information is available on Apple’s support website for setting up Touch ID and setting up a passcode

Fingerprints are encrypted and stored on the Apple device only and are not made available to any other service providers, including TwinStar.

Touch ID requirements

Requires iOS 8 or later and one of these devices:

  • iPhone 5S or later
  • iPad Pro, iPad Air 2, or iPad mini 3 or later.
