Had a read of this earlier (nothing particularly groundbreaking I shouldn’t think).
This stood out to me though, as I don’t remember seeing it anywhere else.
For those consumers still worried about the potential for drive-by theft from contactless cards, biometric technology could help quell these fears. Gemalto has developed a payment card with a built-in fingerprint sensor, which could also lift the ceiling on transaction limits.
The cardholder’s biometric data is enrolled at their bank, and the fingerprint reference data is securely encrypted and stored in the card’s secure chip, not on the bank’s servers. Better still for merchants, no upgrade is required for their POS systems as the biometric check is directly performed on the card.
I still probably use my card more than my phone to be honest - I find it easier!
