MasterCard has launched new technology that allows individuals to take a selfie to approve online purchases. The feature is available via the MasterCard identity check app.
The company says that using selfies and fingerprint scans are safer than typed passwords, because passwords are easy for scammers to guess.
MasterCard is also searching for other ways to prevent fraud including measuring heart rate and scanning eyes to further assure secured purchases.
