What is Voice ID?
As part of our commitment to provide customers with innovative new services, we are proud to launch Voice ID. Voice ID is a simple, fast and secure way to authenticate customers over the phone.
Voice ID uses your voice to authenticate you and recognises over 100 features of your unique voice. Like your fingerprint your voice is unique to you and allows us to be confident it’s really you who we are speaking with, making it even more secure. Simply speaking the phrase ‘My Voice is my Password’ into the phone will do the job that security questions did in the past.

How does it work?
The Voice ID technology is a speaker authentication technology that captures a voice sample from a live caller, compares it to a previously stored voiceprint, and produces a confidence score of how closely the caller's voice sample matches the voiceprint. A voiceprint includes more than 100 unique physical and behavioural characteristics of a person such as length of the vocal tract, nasal passage, and pitch, cadence, accent, etc. which makes a voiceprint as unique to an individual as a fingerprint is.
