SmartMetric biometric fingerprint payments card now lasts five years


SmartMetric, Inc. announced it has increased the life span of its fingerprint activated payments card to an estimated five years, due to its advanced internal power management system.

“Having a rechargeable battery and a sophisticated power management system inside the card, while still retaining the ISO size and thickness of a standard credit card, allows the card to be effectively used at regular ATM and retail point of sale machines,” said the SmartMetric and CEO Chaya Hendrick.

SmartMetric’s fingerprint scanner is built inside EMV payment credit and debit chip cards, serving as an added layer of biometric authentication protection.

The company develops a range of biometric activated payment and identity cards, providing an effective security solution that combats data fraud, account takeover and identity thefts.

Previously reported, SmartMetric, Inc. developed a small fingerprint scanner that fits inside a credit or debit card to protect card holders against identity and payments card theft.
