Mastercard has laucnhed a technology that allows people to pay with a selfie. When shopping online, consumers can use a selfie to verify their identity, thereby eradicating the need for passwords or PINs. In order to use the technology, users must first download the 'Identity Check Mobile App', which allows them to confirm their identity with a fingerprint scan or facial recognition. The software launched in the UK and 11 other European countries on 4 October. It will launch in more countries in 2017.
