LONDON, July 06, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — NordLocker, an encrypted cloud storage provider, is pleased to announce that it’s launching a feature in high demand — biometric authentication.
The new feature is available to Android and Windows users and adds flexibility and convenience to the login process. Instead of typing in their master password, users are able to unlock NordLocker via their fingerprint and/or face ID. Windows users can use Windows Hello instead of their master password to log in to NordLocker.
“Biometrics add an extra layer of security to your online accounts and are one of the safest authentication methods out there,” says Oliver Noble, a cybersecurity expert at NordLocker. “To ensure the maximum protection and privacy, I’d recommend using biometrics along with multi-factor authentication. As for the master password, it should be unique and complex.”
