Popular payment system MasterCard has presented a new credit card equipped with a unique touch fingerprint sensor. The novelty became known from the press release, which is posted on the company’s official website.
The essence of her work lies in the fact that now instead of the usual PIN-code you need to put your finger to a special sensor that will determine the cardholder and confirm the action performed on the map. Also for more security you can use two kinds of identification: first, a fingerprint sensor, and then the PIN.
The novelty has already tested successfully in South Africa. Wide product release scheduled for the end of this year.
The head of the departments corporate risk and security of MasterCard Ajay Bhalla said that customers of the payment system is satisfied with the security and convenience of biometrics. A fingerprint is unique and it is impossible to crack, which gives confidence in the safety of their money from cardholders.
It is also noted that access biometric card will depend on the willingness of a Bank to adopt the new system.
