BDO ATMs with fingerprint scanner and QR support

BDO ATMs with fingerprint scanner and QR support

Some BDO ATMs in the Metro now have fingerprint scanners and QR support for cardless withdrawal.


We’ve noticed these BDO ATMs with fingerprint scanners since December 2020. The scanner allows you to register your fingerprint and use it it to authorize transactions.


Alternatively, you can also use QR codes instead of your debit card to make withdrawals. You’ll have to access your BDO mobile app and generate a QR code before you make the transaction.

These features are great addition to ATM security as it lessens the risk of card skimming. Make sure to sanitize your hands, though, when using the fingerprint scanner.

    We have the new ATM in our office building in Makati. Okay sya, tried almost all functions (QR Withdrawal, Cardless withdrawal using email address and biometrics/facial recognition instead of PIN). Last month nung kinabit sya, mabagal lang ung response sa biometrics/facial recognition but nag-improve na rin ung speed this month.

    I hope BDO considered their depositors who are:
    Sick & cant go to the atm, those without smart phones and/or cannot operate smart phones, senior citizens & pwd
    How will they do the fingerprinting or facial recognition all the more, generate a QR code?
