MasterCard to set selfie password

MasterCard can set a new way of verifying credit cards.

The conservative method, while entering the password, appears not to be efficient enough.

Thus, the payment service decided to be up-to-date and use a selfie instead.

The new program will be examined this autumn. In case everything is successful, holders of the card will have to provide their scanned face, while purchasing any goods.

Selfie should be done with a smartphone. The experts claim it will be much easies, than dealing with passwords and keep the figures in mind.
