Intesa Sanpaolo is the latest to try its hand at fingerprint cards

  • The card is provided by Gemalto through the bank, with technology from Zwipe
  • Using a fingerprint sensor from the “FPC1300” series which activates the card’s contactless capabilities
  • Has “ultra-low” power consumption and works with standard contactless POS terminals
  • Security enabled by biometrics will remove the need for a four-digit or longer PIN entry, and eliminate transaction limits on contactless payments
  • Card works with the existing payments infrastructure as standard point of sale terminals provide the power necessary to operate
