SmartMetric Brings Chip & Fingerprint Biometrics to Chip and PIN EMV Credit Cards

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Dec 4, 2014) - SmartMetric, Inc. (OTCQB: SMME) SmartMetric has successfully developed a super miniature fingerprint scanner that sits inside a credit card to act as the ultimate key to protect a person's credit card. Forget passwords and computer generated tokens, by using a person's fingerprint to activate a user's credit or debit card "SmartMetric has made the card user the key," said SmartMetric's President & CEO, Chaya Hendrick.

The SmartMetric developed in card biometric identification and activation system uses a SmartMetric developed ultra-miniature fingerprint reader that stores and reads a person's fingerprint. The card user's fingerprint is stored inside the card and never travels across networks or is never stored on a central computer. And unlike a PIN or password it cannot be hacked by number and password generators commonly used by today's card fraudsters.

SmartMetric has made substantial improvements in its technology which has caused a significant decrease in components causing greater cost and manufacturing efficiencies. The company is preparing to commence mass production in the first quarter of 2015 with major financial institutions from around the world already expressing interest in using the company's biometric security solution.
