What is Touch ID and how does it work?
Touch ID is an Apple specific feature that allows users to verify their identity with fingerprints registered on their device. It provides a secure, convenient way to access your SunTrust Mobile or Tablet App. Once prompted, users place their finger on the home button and the device “reads” the fingerprint to confirm it is an authorized fingerprint. When your fingerprint is confirmed, you are automatically signed on to the app.
