Samsung and Mastercard develop card that reads your fingerprint

We must go back until 2017 to the date on which Mastercard presented a card with a built-in fingerprint reader. Now the payments company has entered into a partnership with Samsung to launch a new card with these features.

The card in question will give the user the possibility to use his fingerprint when making a payment. The goal is to be able to stop using the classic PIN, using this solution that is more friendly to social distance.

Using the card at ATMs without having to enter the PIN is a goal

In this new model, the small chips will be developed by Samsung Card. And the goal is that this type of card can be used at any ATM, without the need to enter your personal code.


In addition to promoting social detachment, this feature can also decrease the risk of fraud. In practice, the goal is to make the security solution more secure. contactless (no contact) that has become so popular in the last year.

The function of contactless allows you to make purchases without having to insert the card at the ATM. But in the event of card theft, you can give rise to misuse until you cancel it. With the introduction of digital printing, this is a problem that is more easily solved.

Card will be available in South Korea in 2021

It is important to note that, according to both companies, this card will be launched in South Korea first in 2021. The adoption process will be “gradual” with the arrival in more countries in the future.

Hanjoo Yoon, vice president of planning and communication at Samsung Card, says this is a “powerful solution”. It will be interesting to see it in practice in a few months.
