Visa embeds a fingerprint in its payment system

We All have long been accustomed to biometric sensors in our devices, but if we need to withdraw money from a plastic card, we still are not the most safe method, like a PIN. But the Visa company has decided to change this and start to incorporate into their cards the fingerprint scanner.

It is Worth noting that to introduce a new method representatives Visa have decided not just. Was a large-scale survey in which users chose a new method. He himself is that everyone who uses a Visa card of the new sample, will be able to apply the usual procedure of identity verification using the fingerprint. The fingerprint scanner is activated at the moment when the card is inserted into the terminal. If the user will put the finger, the chip will compare the imprint with archival and will enable or disable the processing of the transaction. In addition, will be available and the "traditional" method of verification using a PIN.

The System is fully Autonomous, because the fingerprint is only stored on the card and the chip when using contract many from the terminal. The first card of the new sample will be distributed among the employees and customers of companies, Mountain America Credit Union and Bank of Cyprus. As stated by the representative of the Visa mark Nelson

"the Whole system runs very gracefully, quickly and quietly. She'll recognize me in a split second. We conducted a survey among all the options biometric identification fingerprint recognition has the highest percentage of trust (50%) as the desired means of authentication to confirm payments".
