📰 MasterCard 💳 sets biometric ID 🤳 deadline for banks

While driving to work this morning heard this on the radio and now did a Google search to confirm.
So MasterCard has announced it plans for all consumers to be able to identify themselves with biometrics when using MasterCard from April 2019.

I am guessing this might be what Monzo has been waiting for to implement instead of 3DS. Can someone from Monzo confirm this that this indeed is the case and are we going to get this next year or a bit earlier?


It will certainly be interesting how this develops - especially since this probably drastically reduce fraud if done right.

Wasn’t sure where to post this.


@AlanDoe suggest we close this old topic
