Fact or fiction?
It’s been a while since biometrics, such as using your finger or facial print to unlock your smartphone, made their entrance. However, the use of biometrics as a secure and easy way to complete the payment authentication process at a point of sales (POS) has not convinced everyone yet.
The technology is there, but the uptake is still in its early stages and evolving at a different pace worldwide. For instance:
- Palm biometry is unknown in Europe
- Facial biometry raises questions about privacy in Europe but has become the new norm in China
- Voice biometry is widely known and since the quality level took a leap in 2021, people are progressively starting to use it.
Biometric payments has a future potential ahead of it because it’s natural, secure and frictionless. All depends on the willingness of people to make use of this technology!
