NatWest set to launch biometric card technology pilot

NatWest is all set to launch a pilot for their new biometric card technology in collaboration with Visa, Mastercard and the digital security company Gemalto.

The new technology will facilitate the customers to verify their transactions above £30 with a fingerprint scan rather than a PIN code.

David Crawford, Head of Effortless Payments said: “We are using the very latest technology across our business to make banking easier for our customers and biometric fingerprint cards are one of the many technologies we are exploring further. This is the biggest development in card technology in recent years and we are excited to trial the service.”

Howard Berg, UK MD of Gemalto said: “Using a fingerprint rather than a PIN code to authorize transactions has many advantages, primarily enhanced security and greater convenience. Cardholders can pay quickly and easily with just a simple touch, and they no longer need to worry about the limit on contactless payment transactions.”

Founded in 1968, National Westminster Bank is a retail and commercial bank in the United Kingdom. It was formed by the merger of National Provincial Bank and Westminster Bank. Since 2000, it has been part of The Royal Bank of Scotland Group.
