NEW YORK, May 14, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — SmartMetric, Inc. (OTCQB:SMME) – SmartMetric has created a super thin fully functional fingerprint scanner that fits inside a credit or debit card. The amazingly thin biometric scanning electronics developed by SmartMetric, allows the credit card or debit card to become an advanced electronic biometric protected device.
The company has spent over a decade to make its electronics thin enough to fit inside a standard credit/debit card. It is powered by an internal rechargeable battery that allows the card to do an instant, sub second biometric fingerprint scan prior to the card being inserted into an ATM or retail card reader.
“Having our card work in existing card readers was a critical criteria we set out to achieve in our product development and having achieved this objective we now find a tremendous amount of interest in our biometric thin card technology for many new card based security applications”, said today SmartMetric’s President and CEO, Chaya Hendrick
Replacing vulnerable and insecure PIN numbers and passwords with a card holders fingerprint biometrics is a game changer in the field of credit and debit card security. Like the biometric technology used in today‘s smartphones, the SmartMetric biometric card technology stores the card holders fingerprint inside the card. At no time does the persons fingerprint leave the card. This is obviously much more secure than a card system that sends a person’s fingerprint across a network for a comparison with a stored fingerprint on a central remote computer somewhere in the cloud.
SmartMetric, along with its distributors who are specialist experts in the credit card industry, are in product implementation discussions with major card issuing Banks in the United States, Latin America and Europe.
The company is also now moving forward with its security card product that uses the same super thin biometric electronics developed for credit and debit cards for use in cyber and access control cards. Also as thin as standard credit cards and also having multiple access and identity validation functions built into the single card.
The SmartMetric Biometric card is a powerful new technology in the multibillion dollar fight against ID theft and credit card fraud.
The company has recently appointed experienced credit card manufacturers in the United States and South America as product representatives who are using their years of providing credit card products to card issuing Banks in their respective countries.
The SmartMetric biometric credit card is being met with a very high level of enthusiasm as the banking industry is recognizing the benefits of having this advanced biometric in-the-card security technology for their customers.
SmartMetric is a United States company with its head office in Las Vegas, Nevada. It has a team of advanced engineers in Tel Aviv, Israel and has mass manufacturing capacity in various parts of the world. The company can now manufacture 1 million cards a month and has the capacity to increase this significantly based on product demand.
The SmartMetric biometric card is protected by five (5) recently “issued” patents. Additional patents are pending. SmartMetric is prepared and willing to defend its patents vigorously against all infringers.
