SmartMetric Has Turned the Credit Card Into a Mobile Device With a "Built Inside the Card" Powerful Computer That Has Both NFC Wireless Communication Along With EMV Contact Chip Both Activated by Users' Biometrics

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - November 27, 2015) - SmartMetric, Inc. (OTCQB: SMME) -- SmartMetric's "in-card" biometric technology has turned the credit card into a new category of mobile device. Using a powerful Cortex processor inside the card along with memory and a sophisticated power management system it communicates with the outside world by way of an EMV contact chip or NFC radio frequency all controlled using a card user's biometrics.

What we have created is an exciting new mobile device category as well as a new Credit Card category said today SmartMetric's President & CEO, Chaya Hendrick.

The SmartMetric Biometric EMV Card has an embedded inside the card fingerprint reader that is used to scan a person's fingerprint, authenticate the card user and then in turn activates the card's EMV chip prior to a transaction at an ATM or in store checkout. The SmartMetric biometric card solution increases the trust level while providing a frictionless and seamlessly enhanced security experience for the card user.

According to EMVco there are 3.4 billion EMV chip cards now issued around the world. The United States is now changing over in excess of 1 billion credit and debit cards to EMV chip cards throughout the country.
