Now, when you make a call to our customer service center, we can verify you with just the unique characteristics of your voice. You simply speak and our Voice ID technology authenticates you quickly and securely.
We know it can be frustrating to have to answer multiple questions when you call us with account questions. Security is a priority, but so is your convenience. That’s why we are excited to introduce Voice ID – a smart, simple technology that creates a digital voiceprint with just the unique characteristics of your voice.
The voiceprint created with Voice ID is fully encrypted with digital markers that capture more than 100 physical and tonal qualities of your voice. The result is an authentication system that uses your own individuality to safeguard your account against fraud.
It’s easy to make Voice ID your secure verification system. You will be automatically enrolled next time you call our customer service number. You can opt out and use traditional authentication methods at any time.
