Of all the APIs that Apple has made available to developers after WWDC 2014, Touch ID is one of the ones that will give developers the most play. Unlocking applications, access to private files, there are thousands of options but one of them is the one that will give more to talk about and that is the payments. Being able to make payments using Touch ID beyond the App Store or iTunes will be a standard as soon as iOS 8 comes out, a possibility that no one will want to miss.
Apple has not neglected security with the opening of Touch IDPaypal, from which it was said that it was drinking the winds for being part of Apple’s mobile payment system, it seems that it will be one of the first to incorporate Touch ID to its system .
One of the issues that has raised the most suspicions with the opening of this API is security. Many people are reluctant to provide their footprint not only to Apple but to third parties, although in reality the way this API works avoids this possibility. Its operation would be based on Keychain, which would be in charge of checking the fingerprint without the developers having access to it, as explained by Craig Federighi during the keynote.
Via Paypal it will integrate Touch ID into its applications.
