how to activate the signature with biometrics to avoid confirmation SMS

The BBVA app, which already allows you to pay taxes from your mobile, has recently been updated with an important new feature: signature of operations through biometrics. Until now, the signature by means of an SMS was necessary to verify the operations that we carried out from the mobile, something that we can now do with a fingerprint or Face ID, in the case of the iPhone.

We will explain to you how can you activate the biometric signature to avoid receiving an SMS every time you have to sign an operation. BBVA indicates that we will be able to sign “some” operations with this method, not all, but without a doubt it is a good relief to avoid a few SMS.

Since its last update, the BBVA application allows activate biometrics as a signature method. The main advantage of using this method is that we avoid receiving SMS In most of the operations, a somewhat slow and tedious process (although safe) to verify that we want to perform an operation.

In the event that we want to activate biometrics to sign operations, we will have to have the BBVA app updated and continue the steps that we discuss below. The process is simple and does not take more than a few seconds.

  • Open the BBVA app
  • Go to the ‘Security and Privacy’ section
  • Click on ‘Access / signature methods’
  • Search for ‘signature with biometrics’ and activate the option

By activating this option, the signature is done exclusively with biometrics, so you will not receive any more verification messages (except for certain operations that BBVA has not detailed.
