FNB has launched a new kiosk that allows you to open an account with only your thumbprints as verification.

The bank has formed a partnership with the department of home affairs, and uses government records to verify your identity.

“The machines are directly linked to Home Affairs and because they use fingerprint technology on their side, we are able to quickly verify who you are,” says Lee-Anne van Zyl, CEO of FNB Points of Presence.

The TouchPoint kiosk allows people to open an eWallet Extra account with their thumbprints. Existing FNB customers can also do all their general banking, except withdraw money.
