What is Voice Password?

Our Voice Password service is a new mode of authentication which allows you to use your voice as a password.

Is my voice print unique? What happens if somebody’s voice sounds like mine?

No two voices are the same. Each human voice and extracted voice print is as unique to an individual as a fingerprint. There is an additional built in feature for Second Factor authentication which will be required to make any financial transactions on the IVR (Utility Bill Payment/inter account payments).

What if someone uses a recording of my voice?

The voice biometrics technology is equipped with Liveness Detection Technology which is capable of detecting recordings of previously heard voice utterances. In such scenarios, the system will prompt you to say another phrase (over and above the Voice Passphrase) for additional checks. We encourage you to take precautions against having your voice recorded to minimize the chances of someone else misusing the voice recording.

What if my voice is affected because of illness (e.g. flu or sore throat)?

You will be able to use your Voice Password for verification as long as your voice is not severely affected by the illness. However, if you are unable to use your Voice Password due to illness or noisy conditions, the IVR will offer you the conventional method of authentication (card no & PIN).

What services are available?

  • Predictive statement (Statement generation, credit card payment, salary credit alert)
  • Balance Enquiry
  • Card Blocking
  • Email Statements
  • Card Activations

Speak naturally!. As an example, if you are calling to enquire about your credit card balance, you can simply say:

“I want to know my credit card balance” or “I want to know my credit card outstanding.” Or “I want my statement to be sent to me by email”.

What if I want to hear the information again?

At the end of each inquiry, you can ask the Virtual Agent to “Repeat” the information to hear it again before you move on to the next service or inquiry.

What happens if I want to withdraw cash but I have forgotten my debit card?

We have an ‘SMS cash feature’ which means you can make a cash transfer to any mobile number including your own mobile number. The receiver will receive a pin code which is valid for four hours, during which time the cash can be retrieved from any FAB ATM / Cash Deposit Machine by using the mobile number the cash was sent to, and the pin code. FAB Mobile app / online banking users have a single, daily transaction limit of AED 2,000 per day and payit users have a single, daily transaction limit of AED 1,000 per day. Users need to be fully verified.

What is the cut-off time for transfers within the UAE?

We process transfers of up to AED 10,000 instantly. For transfers above AED 10,000:
  • We process requests submitted before 4 p.m. on a working day, on the same day.
  • We process requests submitted after 4 p.m or on a bank holiday, on the next working day.
