MASTERCARD MAY LET YOU PAY WITH YOUR FACE
MasterCard is trying out a new technology that lets online shoppers authorize a transaction with a snapshot of their face instead of a password.
1. Download MasterCard’s Identity Check app.
2. Go shopping online.
3. When it’s time to check out, you’ll get a push notification to your mobile device, which opens the app.
4. Hold up your phone, like taking a selfie and blink.
5. A facial recognition image taken at the time of transaction is compared with image created at the time of enrollment. No consumer image will be stored
