Recently I saw this advert for HSBC mobile banking app which has me a little worried. In the advert the actor logs into his online banking using "Voice Id" (essentially say a secret password and hey presto!)
It worried me for a few reasons:
- Anyone in earshot can hear your secret word
- Anyone with a recording device can record you saying that word and fool the security system
- How accurate can Voice recognition be!
So this leads me back to my questions.. How safe is Voice Recognition ID?
