A test pilot to make purchases and withdraw money by means of a fingerprint recognition device is being carried out in two French cities.
As a first step, users must register their fingerprints in the bank where they have their accounts. The accounts will then be linked to a bank card. While paying, clients will have to put their finger in the biometric reader that will send a signal to the card he is carrying, to check if fingerprints match. If they are identical, the terminal will validate the transaction.
