Since we have move very longer in the advanced technology and most of the smartphones today have a fingerprint scanner, Google has finally added a biometric authentication for Money transfer. Yes, this is a piece of very good news for all the GPay users as the biometric authentication will add a new level of security for each of your money transfers. 

Starting with version 2.100 Google is finally adding support for fingerprints and face authentication for money transfers. But wait, you can only get this option if you have a device running on Android 10. This is explainable by the fact that Google is using a specific Biometric API that debuted with Android 10. So, if you a device running on the latest version of Android, i.e, Android 10, you will see an option to enable the biometric authentication on Google Pay.
