Biometria Bradesco allows consultation and withdrawal without card at the ATM. “Bradesco Security at the Palm of the Hand” this is Bradesco’s call for the new service available at thousands of ATM machines throughout Brazil. December (2012) was the month of technological news, mainly those launched by banking and financial institutions, as well as numerous new features, including bank cards with payment by approach.
Bradesco’s Biometrics for cardless withdrawal of the limit amount and queries of account statements was already being noticed by the users of the network and by its clients, in many agencies the novelty can be used normally. This proposal is quite futuristic, the service has been officially released by Bradesco to customers since December 13, with the service, Bradesco customers can cash withdrawals and queries of account balance at ATMs without having to use the bank card.
The new account access technology is made thanks to ” biometric identification “, which we have seen in dozens of films such as The Avengers, Iron Man 2, Phantom Protocol, Transformers 3 where much of the hits come with the reading of the retina, the thumb or the complete hand, in the case of Bradesco the reading is done in the palm of the hand and does not need to use the plastic.
What is Biometrics? Biometrics is one of the most advanced security technologies in the world for data protection and access. Its characteristic feature is the use of unique physical or behavioral measures in the Bradesco bank, Biometry technology is used as an access device using the “palm”, it functions as a scanner that captures the image of the vascular pattern and serves as authentication every time the customer uses the Self-Service machine.
According to Bradesco, approximately 93% of the more than 35,000 machines and self-service terminals are already working with the new Biometric reading device.
If you want to use the service to access the banking system with Biometrics, you must first make a previous registration, for this, just go to one of the bank agencies to request the scanning of the palm and present: Original documentation that has photo – current account and / or savings – Physical Person – Current security device for Access, TAN Code or Token – 6-digit password, typing when registering.
Consultations and withdrawals
How to consult the balance, statements and withdraw without card of the necessary money in the checking account or savings account Bradesco without the card? The procedure is simple, the customer types in the electronic answering machine, the numbers of his agency, account and digit. If the account used at the time is a joint account, it will be necessary to inform who is the holder that is using the service.
With the access to the system, the client selects the desired operation or the value of the serve, does the validation of the operation with the use of Biometrics using the palm of the hand. The only thing I did not understand was the use of the six-digit password to end the transaction. The transactions with Biometria do not change the value of the withdrawals made in the conventional way, that is to say, they are the same of the transactions with the banking card.
Note : Other banks such as Itaú and Santander are also in this race of access for cardless withdrawals and consultations of balances and statements, in addition to news with prepaid cards, chip cards and contactless cards, we are attentive.
