SmartMetric Brings the Power of Biometrics to the Credit and Debit Card as a Higher Level of Security Than the Hackable PIN Used on Payment Cards

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Jul 7, 2015) - SmartMetric, Inc. (OTCQB: SMME) SmartMetric in creating a fingerprint activated payments card has added biometrics as a better line of security at the point of transaction. Because SmartMetric has embedded a fully functional fingerprint reader inside a credit/debit card while using the industry standard EMV contact chip the SmartMetric fingerprint activated card works with standard point of sale payment card readers and ATMs.

We use a person's fingerprint and use a miniature fully functional fingerprint reader inside the card to read the card user's fingerprint prior to the card being inserted into say an ATM. Following a fingerprint match that takes less than a second, the card's smartcard chip is activated that then allows a transaction to take place. If the card user's fingerprint doesn't match then the card's transaction chip will not work, said today SmartMetric's President & CEO, Chaya Hendrick.

SmartMetric is planning its first production release of its card by the end of July, 2015 which will allow the company to move forward with its sales to financial institutions and banks around the world.
