ITNews reports on the move, which will be rolled out to the mobile app to compliment the existing service that allows for voice authentication when calling into the ATO’s existing call centre.

The ATO is partnering with Optus for the voice biometric work, using Nuance’s Freespeech system for authentication. According to the ATO, more than 760,000 individuals have already enrolled with the system.
