Biometrics by Fingerprints in UK'S first biometric credit card pilot
After a successful pilot with biometric debit card, NatWest today starts the first biometric credit card pilot in the UK. The card is provided by Thales, using Fingerprints’ T-shape sensor module and software platform for payments. Its ultra-low power consumption means that the card does not need to feature a battery, as it borrows power from the contactless POS terminal, and superior biometric performance ensures both security and convenience for its user.
Believed to be the biggest development in card technology in recent years, NatWest customers being part of the pilot, will be able to verify transactions above the £30 payment cap using their fingerprint instead of PIN code. Easy and secure.
