Mastercard is planning to allow people pay for things with Selfie as password


MasterCard will start experimenting with a new app, which will approve online purchases with a facial scan.

According to CNN Money, At checkout, you’ll be asked to hold up your phone and snap a photo. MasterCard’s thinking? It’s easier than remembering a password.

How will it work, they saying,

You have to download the MasterCard phone app to use the feature.
MasterCard said a pop-up will ask for your authorization after you pay for something.

If you choose fingerprint, all it takes is a touch. If you go with facial recognition, you stare at the phone – blink once – and you’re done. MasterCard’s security researchers decided blinking is the best way to prevent a thief from just holding up a picture of you and fooling the system.

MasterCard said it doesn’t actually get a picture of your finger or face. All fingerprint scans will create a code that stays on the device. The facial recognition scan will map out your face, convert it to 1s and 0s and transmit that over the Internet to MasterCard.

[Guys, it looks like selfie will be here for a long time.]
