In the Visa card will embed the fingerprint scanner

Cards with a new kind of protection will issue Visa soon. Biometric identification will be used as an alternative to traditional. The company believes that this approach will soon become dominant.

In the new Visa will be integrated fingerprint scanner. This is stated on the official website of the company.

It is noted that the first batch of new Visa cards this week will be at the disposal of Mountain America Credit Union and Bank of Cyprus.

To confirm the identity of the card holder and the subsequent transaction is enough to bring the finger to the scanner. If the system has identified you, a tiny indicator on the map turns green.

If the finger is not put, they will use traditional methods of confirmation, a PIN or a signature on a check. The system is fully Autonomous: the thumbprint stored on the card, and the chip if necessary, power down directly from the POS terminal. They not need to be updated.

The print pattern will be stored in encrypted form only on the map and will not be shared outside of it — neither the server of the Bank or into temporary storage.

Visa believes that the new approach will quickly become dominant.

“Among all the options biometric identification fingerprint recognition has received high feedback (50%) as the desired means of authentication to confirm payments in shops”, – stated in the message.

Earlier it was reported that Visa have fallen sharply profit.
