Is Fingerprint sign in more secure than 4 digit passcode sign in?


Fingerprint sign in has the same high level security as all authentication methods for Online, Mobile and iPad Banking. It is backed by our security guarantee. That means that if your Westpac account is compromised as a result of Internet fraud, we guarantee to repay any missing funds, providing you comply with our Online Banking Terms and Conditions.

This includes keeping your sign in details (including iPad and mobile passcode, passwords and Westpac Protect™ SMS Codes) private.
