Passwords and 4 Digit ATM Numbers Are Obsolete and Just Aren't Secure Says SmartMetric the Maker of the Biometric Secured Fingerprint Activated Credit and Identity Cards

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - January 13, 2016) - SmartMetric, Inc. (OTCQB: SMME) -- SmartMetric says the continued use of passwords and even ATM 4 digit numeric codes are so flawed as a security tool. It is particularly amazing that following the 100's of millions of individuals information being stolen from data breaches in 2015 that 30 and 40 year old security tools are still the main authorization and sign on tool in both the banking and online world, said today SmartMetric's President & CEO, Chaya Hendrick 

SmartMetric has created a safer and better user validation and identification technology using a persons individual and unique biometrics to validate and identify the payments card user or computer network user. The company has created a super miniature fully functional powerful fingerprint scanner that fits inside a payments card as well as identity and secure log on cards. Using an internal Cortex processor built in the card the SmartMetric biometric card scans, reads and matches a persons fingerprint in less than 0.25 seconds. The cards internal scanner is powered by a rechargeable battery developed by SmartMetric and also embedded inside the payments and identity card.
