A couple weeks ago a new product was announced. This product is a new biometric card with a built in fingerprint scanner. This new card will allow the user to activate their card without having to use their pin. It also offers another level of security, requiring a fingerprint to access. This product is made by MasterCard.
How Does it Work?
This device allows the user to feel more secure in their transactions. By requiring a fingerprint to activate the card, it not only removes the need to remember a pin but ensures that only the owner can use the card. This is an amazing leap in security. This means that other people will not be able to steal your card and use it for in-person purchases. The video above also demonstrates that it is just as fast as using the tap functionality with even more security than using a pin.
