    As if I was ever going to willingly give my fingerprints to a private company… especially financial ones!

    A neat idea but how encrypted is encrypted

    Stupid idea. Why do banks keep wasting their money on stupid technology like this?

    Every phone has a fingerprint reader. Canada is still waiting for android pay. The banks are being stubborn and delaying it with the silly tech like suretap and now this credit card with biometrics.

    • So your idea is for everyone to buy a phone with a fingerprint scanner?

      This would be for people who don’t want or can’t afford a smartphone with a fingerprint reader. Notice how they’re starting in South Africa and moving their way to Europe and east Asia?

      Canada is still waiting for Android Pay because Google isn’t putting much effort into bringing it here, just like they never put much effort into bringing Google Voice or YouTube Red here. Even Samsung is ahead of Google in terms of bringing mobile payments here.

  • This is a great idea. Once it works for rap translations, it will be a huge time saver for lost cards. Now only if we can do something about online fraud.

    So much redundancy….useless tech once everyone switches to mobile banking
