IDEMIA and JCB to introduce F-Code biometric payment card in Japan
IDEMIA has partnered with international payment network JCB to introduce the F-Code biometric payment card to Japanese customers.
The F-Code solution is a payment card that features a built-in fingerprint sensor. F-Code ensures a unique and universal identification and helps retailers speed up the check-out process as well as enabling banks and governments to reduce illegitimate access to services and prevent identity fraud and theft.
This partnership announcement was made by Didier Lamouche, IDEMIA’s CEO, at the JCB World Conference in Taipei.
“Convinced that digital payments will change the way people shop and pay by bringing more convenience and security to the payment experience, we are thrilled to participate in the next wave in Japan,” commented Lamouche. “We are looking forward to shaping the future of payments with our partner JCB.”
Just last month it was announced that IDEMIA partnered with the San Francisco 49ers and will equip Levi’s Stadium with biometrics-based technology and deploy a trusted fan program.
