IrisGuard smartphone uses iris recognition to secure mobile transactions


IrisGuard launched its EyePay Phone today at GSMA 360 Mobile in Kigali. The new smartphone features IrisGuard’s iris recognition technology to authenticate identity and secure mobile financial transactions.

“IrisGuard is delighted to launch the EyePay Phone here in Kigali, at this key event for the mobile industry, commented IrisGuard’s managing director for MEA Bashar Arafeh. “While mobile iris recognition has been in use for a while, IrisGuard has now taken it to new levels by combining our years of iris technology expertise with a smartphone. No longer is the user limited to one-to-one device recognition, the EyePay Phone authenticates identity on a global scale, connecting to an EyeCloud network and matching the user’s Unique Verifiable Identity across a database of millions.

The company sponsored the Mobile for Humanitarian Innovation Programme networking reception at GSMA Mobile 360 to celebrate the launch and will take part in the Innovating for Trust panel session tomorrow.

Earlier this year IrisGuard won the International Innovator of the Year award at the LendIt Fintech Industry Awards for its blockchain retail technology.
