Traditional bank cards will soon be ‘replaced’ with smart-cards that scans your fingerprint | Daily Mail Online

Remembering your PIN could be a thing of the past.

Traditional bank cards may soon be phased out, thanks to the launch of biometric debit cards by Dutch chipmaker Gemalto.

The new bank cards will allow consumers to buy goods using their fingerprints in a similar way to Apple’s Touch ID.

Authenticating a payment with a fingerprint is more secure than a four-digit PIN, which means the new Gemalto cards ditch the contactless payment limit.
