SmartMetric to Exhibit Its World First Fingerprint Activated EMV Payments Card at the Smart Card Alliance Payments Forum in Orlando, Florida From April 4th to 7th, 2016

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - March 23, 2016) - SmartMetric, Inc. (OTCQB: SMME) -- SmartMetric will be exhibiting at the upcoming Smart Card Alliance Payments Forum being held in Orlando Florida at the Loews Pacific Hotel from April 4th through to April 7th, 2016.

SmartMetric has created the world's first fingerprint activated credit card that uses a persons fingerprint to identify and verify the card user. A cardholder simply touches the cards surface sensor much like what they do now with their fingerprint sensor on a mobile phone, and in less than 0.25 seconds a scan and match is made. If the card user is the legitimate card holder than the cards EMV chip is activated and if not then the card will not work.

SmartMetric is bringing the power of Biometrics to the world of payments cards providing an extremely strong level of security that benefits both card users and card issuing banks alike. We are now in talks with card issuers around the world and are extremely pleased with the reception our new card security solution is now receiving, SmartMetric's President & CEO Chaya Hendrick said today.

SmartMetric is offering its biometric fingerprint activated credit card for $50.00 a card to card issuing banks. Consumer research shows card users would pay considerably more than this if offered to protect against card fraud. The SmartMetric biometric credit card is built around the global EMV chip card. There are now more than 3.4 billion chip cards issued globally. Recent consumer research is showing that 67% of credit card holders would be happy to pay for a biometric safer credit card that has a built in fingerprint scanner.
