CU*Answers, the 100% credit union-owned data processing CUSO, has surpassed 100,000 Multiple Authentication Convenience Options users, ending the 2018 calendar year. MACO, first launched in February 2018, is an add on feature to the CU*Answers mobile app that offers biometric authentication through voice recognition, PIN entry, fingerprint verification, and facial recognition.

“It has been a great success,” said Kristian Daniel, account executive on the CU*Answers Internet Retailer Support Center. “We’ve exceeded our estimates for the first year of the service, with over 100 credit unions signing up and 100,000 members. I am looking forward to launching further credit unions in 2019 and continuing to watch the popular service’s growth.”
