SmartMetric Adds a Biometric Fingerprint Reader to Chip Credit and Debit Cards -- a Person's Fingerprint Is Scanned on the Card and Is Used to Activate the Payments Card Chip

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Apr 8, 2015) - SmartMetric, Inc. (OTCQB: SMME) SmartMetric, after over a decade of research and development, has succeeded in embedding inside a standard credit and debit card a fully functional biometric fingerprint scanner.

This amazing advance in electronic miniaturisation allows SmartMetric to bring the power of biometric security to credit and debit cards as a powerful defense in the ongoing war against payment card fraud.

Using a miniaturised Cortex processor that was made smaller by the R&D team at SmartMetric, along with a uniquely designed power management system that is used to recharge the cards internal battery, SmartMetric has achieved an unbelievable breakthrough in electronics miniaturisation.

Having a fully functional fingerprint reader inside a credit or debit card allows biometric identification to be used to authenticate the card user prior to the card being able to function. "This is an amazing leap forward in identity and card fraud protection," said SmartMetric's President & CEO Chaya Hendrick.

"SmartMetric, having won a recent multi-million legal fee case that was part of its Patent Infringement law suit it had brought against Visa Inc. and MasterCard International, is now free to move forward on all fronts," said SmartMetric's President & CEO.
