Fingerprints enables Société Générale to test limitless contactless with IDEMIA
Société Générale has announced France’s first biometric payment card trial, in collaboration with IDEMIA. The card will be based on IDEMIA’s F.CODE technology, which features Fingerprints’ T-Shape™ fingerprint sensor module.
The strong customer authentication offered by biometrics is enabling the bank to consider removing the contactless payment cap, which currently stands at €30 in France.
The T-shape module is optimized for integration into smartcards using existing industry processes and is part of the ultra-thin FPC1300-series. It has ultra-low power consumption and works with standard contactless POS terminals. The superior biometric performance ensures both security and convenience for cardholders.
