We spoke to Jan Bjerved, Chief Product Officer at BankID BankAxept, who provided insights into the future potential of BankID with biometrics.

Utilizing BankID with biometrics in new indsutries

Jan sees significant potential in a biometric verification process with BankID. People can use the same login method across various platforms and be verified in under 10 seconds. This eliminates the need for lengthy or insecure usernames and passwords.

  • Users can access their accounts faster
  • Users don’t have to remember or reuse lengthy passwords or usernames
  • Companies can improve the user experience while ensuring security
  • Companies can make onboarding easier and increase registrations on their platform
