MasterCard Introduces Fingerprint Payment Cards

Millions of PINs are stolen each year, leaving users to empty debit accounts or fraudulent charges. This outcry prompts credit card companies to add a chip system as a safer alternative to authenticate transactions before credit cards are debited or charged.

The credit card which combines both the traditional four-digit personal identification number (PIN) and a biometric chip will enable customers to use both their PIN and thumb to authenticate payments.
