Mastercard makes biometric cards a reality in Europe: New Trial in Bulgaria

Mastercard unveiled the results of the trial of biometric card with UniCredit Bulbank in Bulgaria. The new solution combines chip technology with fingerprints to conveniently and safely verify the cardholder’s identity for in-store purchases. At the end of the pilot, participants shared their feedback on the technology and how easy it was to use and so 93% of the participants found the biometric card more convenient to use than entering the PIN during the transaction, while 95 % of the participants found the biometric card more secure than regular chip cards.
