NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Nov 18, 2013) - SmartMetric, Inc. (
SmartMetric has developed a fingerprint reader that sits inside a person's ATM/ Credit Card, ID or Access Control Card, Drivers License etc. It is self powered allowing it to perform a fingerprint match while a person is standing at a retail checkout, on the street at an ATM, at a security desk or any other point needing identity verification. A person simply swipes their finger across the SmartMetric sensor on the surface of the card and the card's internal computer processor performs a match with the person's fingerprint that is pre-stored in the memory of the card itself.
For added security a person's fingerprint is always stored and encrypted inside the card and IS NOT stored on a remote computer.
The Biometric activated card provides absolute user identity verification and is a paradigm shift away from traditional, outdated and ever increasingly vulnerable methods such as passwords.
