Goodbye PINs & Passwords

SmartMetric Focused on Releasing Its Credit and ATM Cards With Built in Fingerprint Scanner, the Last Quarter of 2013; The Revolutionary SmartCard for the Financial Services Sector to Be a Game Changer in Transaction Validation

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Oct 2, 2013) - SmartMetric, Inc. (OTCQB: SMME) -- Speaking today from NEW YORK, SmartMetric™ Inc. President & CEO Chaya Hendrick said the company is very excited with the interest it is receiving from Banks and Technology Integrators from around the World, for its world first and only fingerprint scanner inside a credit card.

Speaking about the SmartMetric authentication solution that has a fully functional self powered fingerprint reader built inside a credit card, the company President said this is a game changing technological leap that will save financial institutions around the world Billions from fraud. But like many so called "overnight" successes and breakthrough technologies, SmartMetric has doggedly pursued the development of this technology for a decade. We have seen companies come after us to try and create a fingerprint scanner inside a credit card. Companies have come and gone but the rewards of achieving true technological breakthroughs come to those who don't give up but rather pursue single mindedly their objective. Long term perseverance and tenacity is something many on Wall Street don't have the patience for, but for creating game changing new technology it is an imperative, she said. 

The SmartMetric solution is designed to work with existing ATM and in store payment machines using the EMV standard chip on card interface. Functionally a person simply touches their credit card, a scan is made of their fingerprint and if it is the card owner, then the EMV chip is activated to then work in a standard ATM or retail POS machine. So we can see a more secure future as we say goodbye to the old weak passwords and PINs and say hello to the SmartMetric fingerprint reading cards, the company President said.
