BankID High vs BankID with biometrics (Substantial)

The assurance level "BankID with biometrics" (Substantial) will be offered by default with the BankID app and will cover almost all cases of verification. Companies that need assurance level "High" will need to upgrade to it. When "High" is required, the BankID app will automatically prompt the user for a password, making the process seamless.
