Up until now, fingerprint sensors have been incorporated into smartphones and security systems. More recently, tech companies have added fingerprint sensors to laptops and PCs. Now, word is that Samsung and Mastercard are adding this biometric authentication system to payment cards.

Samsung Electronics and Mastercard have signed an MoU (memorandum of understanding) as a part of which the two companies will be launching payment cards with built-in fingerprint sensors. With this move, the two companies aim to provide faster and more secure payment experiences while reducing physical contact with the payments terminal. Simply said, this system will eliminate the need for users to enter PIN while making payments using their payment cards.
