A Smart Biometric Credit Card by SmartMetric, to Safeguard Consumers and Banks – Your Fingerprint Locks and Unlocks Your Credit Card and Can be Used at Standard Retail Credit Card Readers and ATM’s

NEW YORK, March 23, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SmartMetric, Inc. (OTCQB:SMME) – SmartMetric has turned the credit card into a new electronic device using state of the art electronic engineering developed by its engineers in Tel Aviv, Israel.  Inside the new electronic credit card is a fully functional fingerprint scanner.   Stored in the memory inside the card is the card holder's fingerprint which is used to identify the legitimate card holder.  By simply touching the card's surface, a fingerprint scan is done within less than a quarter of a second, matching the cardholder's fingerprint with the fingerprint that is permanently stored inside the card and if the person trying to use the card is the legitimate card holder, the card will then work in retail card readers and ATM ’s.

“In developing the system architecture for our card we have been particular to ensure the privacy of each card holder's fingerprint.  At no time does the cardholder's fingerprint leave their card.  Their fingerprint is not sent across a network ensuring a high level of security of each person's biometric data," said today Chaya Hendrick, President & CEO of SmartMetric.

SmartMetric is a United States company with its head office in Las Vegas, Nevada.  It has a team of advanced engineers in Tel Aviv, Israel and has mass manufacturing capacity in various parts of the world.  The company can now manufacture 1 million cards a month and has the capacity to increase this capacity significantly based on product demand.

Over a decade of research and development has gone into the development of the advanced SmartMetric biometric card.  Many advances in the field of electronics has been achieved in order to create a miniature fully functional biometric fingerprint scanner that sits inside a standard chip card credit card.
