This Might Be The Best Shopping News Since The Credit Card Was Invented
How amazing would this be?
All you shopping lovers out there need to listen up as it sounds like our lives are about to get a whole lot easier.
Lovers of online shopping in particular may well rejoice at the news that trying to remember your credit card password could soon become a thing of the past.
According to a report by CNN Money, MasterCard are about to start testing a new feature which will see purchases approved through the use of a facial scan.
How it works is simple really, particularly if you are anything like selfie queen Kim Kardashian, as all you will need to do is take a selfie when you get to the checkout to get your purchase approved.
MasterCard are hoping that the new technology will also help to eliminate fraud, while it should also allow fingerprint approval.
“MasterCard said it doesn’t actually get a picture of your finger or face,” CNN Money report.
“The facial recognition scan will map out your face, convert it to 1s and 0s and transmit that over the Internet to MasterCard.”
Hmm… if this feature comes in, we may have to get our wages put under lock and key.
