The card – which features Fingerprints’ f’ second-generation T-Shape (T2) sensor module and software platform – is expected to offer new levels of contactless security, convenience and hygiene.

“A hub for payment innovation”

“Brazil and the wider Latin America region is increasingly being recognised as a hub for payment innovation,” commented Adam Philpott, CEO, Fingerprints.

“I’m very pleased that Fingerprints can support Valid in adding this biometric payment card to its product portfolio,” Philpott continued.

“The card’s high level of security will help reduce fraud while enhancing the user experience, thereby aiding banks in customer acquisition.

“We anticipate that several banks in the region will soon adopt biometric payment technology.”
