JCB, Japan's leading payment network, has announced a new payment device that integrates a biometric sensor from Fingerprints. The device can be used for contactless payments, but also for other personal authentication applications where convenience, speed and security is needed such as electronic tickets at events and concerts, or car sharing programs. It is currently being piloted and commercial launch is expected during 2020.'We're excited to see biometrics diversifying and expanding into new payment form factors, a variety of use cases, across different regions', says Thomas Rex, SVP Business Line Smartcards at Fingerprints.
