Customers of Japan’s Ogaki Kyoritsu Bank will soon be able to access services by using their palms for authentication. “The bank plans to install its palm scanning equipment at the counters of all its approximately 160 branches from next spring,” The Asahi Shimbun reports. “The expansion will cover almost all over-the-counter services, including purchases and cancellation of investment trust funds.” The bank developed the palm vein biometric identification system in 2012, but it has so far been limited to select ATMs.
