Facial recognition

If you'd like to add a new payee account to your mobile banking app, you can use facial recognition to complete the safety verification process without using your Security Device. You'll also be able to make transfers totalling up to RMB50,000 per day.

After reading and acknowledging the facial recognition authorisation letter, simply follow the on-screen instructions for verification, and you'll receive a one-time password (OTP) via SMS (see below) to complete the whole process.

To use facial recognition, position your face in front of your device and make sure there isn't anything covering the camera and your face.

Facial Recognition Features

3rd party payment with password & SMS as authentication for small amount transfers.

On our mobile banking, if you want to transfer RMB to other people and the daily accumulated amount is no higher than RMB50,000, you can use "log-on password" along with “SMS verification code” as authentication. If your RMB daily accumulated transfer amount is higher than RMB50,000, you still need your token to complete the transfers.

Make RMB transfers with your mobile phone number

Thanks to the new feature in EBPS, HSBC China mobile banking now supports the mobile phone number RMB transfer in a safe, stable, and effective way. You’ll only need the mobile phone number and the name registered with the bank to either make payment or receive money. You don’t need to type in long account or card numbers that are difficult to remember. 

  • Users can arrange for money transfers using their mobile phone numbers across all bank accounts registered for this function  ( on the condition that the account holding banks support this function).
  • Only Mainland China residents and Mainland China phone numbers will be able to collect money using a registered mobile phone number. The HSBC junior account does not support money transfers and collections using mobile phone numbers.
  • The daily transfer limit is set at RMB10, 000, and this amount will be shared with the daily transfer limit to third party.

To receive money via mobile numbers, you can log on to the HSBC China Mobile Banking app, go to 'Home' page, look for 'Quick actions',  select 'Transfer settings', then choose 'Mobile number receiving settings'.
