Emergence of Biometric Payments
Financial technology experts are predicting that the PIN number will be obsolete within the next five years as banks turn to biometric authentication technology, such as fingerprint, vein pattern and voice recognition, according to a report by The Telegraph. Banks will encourage their customers to use biometric readers or contactless payments at retail stores and ticket terminals instead of the standard “chip and PIN” system.Several major banks, including Halifax and Barclays, have said that PINs are a “flawed” security measure that is inadequate in protecting customers against identity fraud. Banks have introduced new rules that state that customers who write down their PIN, even in disguised form, will be considered “negligent”.
More than 96% of transactions are used via chipped credit or debit cards. However, the British banking industry alone lost nearly £480 (US$730 million) million in card fraud, which is the highest loss in the last decade with the exception of 2008. David Webber of mobile payment software developer Intelligent Environments said the PIN will be “dead” by 2020 as customers are continually losing faith in its ability to protect their money.
