Experts Say Bank Cards Will Soon Be Replaced By Biometric “Smart Cards” That Require A Scan Of Your Fingerprints To Approve Payments

The future becomes a little more dystopian with each passing day.

Can you imagine having your fingerprints scanned every time you make a purchase? If this sort of technology is widely accepted, you may have no choice…

Traditional bank cards may soon be phased out, thanks to the launch of biometric debit cards by Dutch chipmaker Gemalto.

The new bank cards will allow consumers to buy goods using their fingerprints in a similar way to Apple’s Touch ID.

Authenticating a payment with a fingerprint is more secure than a four-digit PIN, which means the new Gemalto cards ditch the contactless payment limit.

Are you ready for a world in which biometric scanning is required to buy or sell anything?
