American Express Canada Takes Another Step Forward in Digital Innovation

American Express® Cardmembers can now access a number of enhancements in the American Express App.

TORONTO, Nov. 18, 2015 /CNW/ - American Express has taken another big step in digital innovation, with the recent usability enhancements to the American Express App. Now featuring Touch ID* log in, Cardmembers can connect to their American Express Account with the touch of a finger on supported iPhone 5s and above devices, running iOS8 or higher.  

The American Express App for iPhone* and Android™ now features an easy to use activity timeline that allows Cardmembers to see their account summary, pending transactions and more in a single view**. The American Express App still allows users to keep track of their account, make a payment, view their Membership Rewards balance, and continue to receive the same customer service they expect from American Express.

"Mobile has become the preferred service channel for some of our Cardmembers and we want to make sure we can offer them a seamless and integrated experience with the American Express App. These recent changes are another step in that direction and we will continue to invest and innovate in this area," said Suat Alaybeyoglu, Vice President, Consumer Acquisition and Management, American Express Canada. 

With the new enhancements, Cardmembers can now:

  • Get quick access to accounts with Touch ID log in
  • View recent transaction details, pending transactions, and transactions using Apple Pay
