Apple Watch as Your Mobile Token:

In this release of VIP Access you can generate a one-time use 6-digit security codes on your watch, and adopt the code as the second factor to access sensitive networks and applications.

Transaction Verification:

VIP Access Push is an excellent choice for institutions that have enabled transaction verification.  After performing an online transaction, VIP will send a Push notification to your watch with the amount of the transaction.  Since the Apple Watch is always at the ready, it’s a simple matter to tap the screen and approve or deny the transaction.  With VIP your Apple Watch becomes a great tool to prevent man-in-the-middle attacks for online transactions.
