Say Goodbye to PIN Numbers, SmartMetric Reports Increased Interest in Its Biometric Credit Card in the Age of Demand for No-Touch Solutions at the Checkout

 

SmartMetric, Inc. (OTCQB: SMME): The Corona-19 virus has made dramatic changes to the way we work and play. Not surprisingly it has also impacted how we pay.

The old and arguably very insecure PIN number used to verify the identity of a debit card used at the checkout or the need to use a pen for signatures that are used by countless numbers of different people during the day is causing a demand for a better, safer way to authenticate a card user. With the knowledge of users on how to transmit the Corona-19 virus is the aversion by consumers to use the touchpad or signature pen at the supermarket checkout is understandable.

Sales staff do not clean card-reader virus-transmitting touchpoints after every customer. Touching a pin pad or using the signature pen at checkout has now become a game of Russian roulette when it comes to safely use your credit or debit card at checkout.

Credit and debit cards still account for more than 95% of in-store transactions with consumers showing even a greater aversion to using cash. Cash is now seen as a potential virus carrier and is the least preferred choice by consumers. This doesn’t mitigate the aversion consumers have regarding the need to touch card readers that are touched by everyone else going through the same checkout.

In talks with card issuers, SmartMetric has seen an increase of interest in its biometric contactless card solution that will allow consumers to have a completely no-touch experience at the checkout while providing a far greater level of transaction security than the old fashioned and weaker PIN and signature methods.

The SmartMetric biometric card solution users a super small fingerprint scanner embedded inside the credit/debit card. Instead of touching the card reader the card user simply touches a square sensor on the top of the card that then causes the internal scanner to read the card holder's fingerprint in less than a second. A user safe and immediate cardholder validation that causes the card to immediately be activated. On activation for the transaction, the card's internal RFID/NFC system allows the card to communicate, without physical contact with the reader. Safe, immediate, and no contact with the card reader required.

SmartMetric’s electronic credit card has an ARM Cortex processor, up to a Gigabyte and beyond memory, contact and contactless standard credit card interface for all credit card readers and ATMs, a stable rechargeable battery, rapid recharge power management system that recharges the card's internal battery when used at the standard card reader, all while still meeting ISO standard size and thickness for credit cards.

The Board and Shareholders of SmartMetric as of late set out to expand the approved portions of the organization. It has likewise made plans to consider an increment of the size of its board alongside taking into consideration a converse split of its offers at some future point. These progressions have been made to work with the up-posting of the organization onto either NASDAQ or NYSE primary sheets at some future point. The SmartMetric Board will just exhort moving to an up-list in particular and after a generous expansion in its offer cost from current levels. Now the organization is centered around offering its biometric Visa item for sale to the public to move from an improvement stage organization to an income acquiring organization.

SmartMetric is a USA-based company with sales and marketing partnerships in Latin America, Europe the United States. Engineering of the biometric card electronics is done in-house and is the owned intellectual property of the company.
