Personal identification is becoming more and more personal as we move to financial transactions that can take place anywhere in the world by electronic means.

October  4 - Mastercard introduces facial recognition mobile payments in Europe

Article: Technology For A Global Monetary System
 

Mastercard has introduced a new fingerprint and facial recognition-based payment technology in Europe to verify the identity of the cardholder, according to a report by InternetRetailing.net. The Check Mobile application is currently available in 12 European markets, including the UK, following trials in the Netherlands, the US and Canada. Mastercard said it will expand the roll-out across the global next year.

The credit card giant says other identity verification systems take consumers away from a retailer’s website or mobile app. Users are then prompted to enter a password, which if entered incorrectly can result in their transaction being declined. Alternatively, Mastercard Identity Check Mobile allows cardholders to verify themselves by using their smartphone’s built-in fingerprint scanner, or by taking a selfie, which is then verified through facial recognition technology.

“We are relentlessly focused on making the online payment experience near frictionless, without making any compromises on safety and security,” said Ajay Bhalla, president of Mastercard’s enterprise risk and security division. “This is a significant milestone in the evolution of payments. Shopping in person has been revolutionized thanks to advances like contactless cards, mobile payments and wearables, and now we are making Identity Check Mobile a reality for online shopping in Europe, and soon, the world.”

“In order to win over users, Mastercard’s app needs to run invisibly and be ready to anticipate behaviour based on contextual data, such as the tilt of the phone,” Rakowski said. “The technology will only catch on if customers feel comfortable enough to use the app, it feels intuitive and meets performance expectations.
