Voice ID - Fast, easy and safe
What is Voice ID?
Voice ID is a security feature available to Telephone Banking customers. It confirms your identity using your voice. If you’re eligible and hold a bank, savings or credit card account with us, you can set up Voice ID.
- Fast - you won't need to remember security information or answer questions
- Easy - it's easy to set up and when you call us again, we'll confirm your identity by asking you to repeat the simple phrase: "My voice is my password"
- Safe - your voice is like your fingerprint and unique to you
For more information about our Telephone Banking Automated Service see below.
How does Voice ID work?
Once set up all you need to do is call us, enter your account details as usual and we’ll ask you to say the phrase "My voice is my password" to access your accounts. This makes banking over the phone with us fast, easy and safe.
Is it secure?
Voice ID analyses over 100 different characteristics of your voice which like your fingerprint, are unique to you. Such as, how you use your mouth and vocal chords, your accent and how fast you talk. It even recognises you if you have a cold or sore throat.
