Fingerprints supports Valid in launching biometric payment card in Brazil

June 2024 by Marc Jacob

Fingerprint Cards AB (Fingerprints) and Valid, the global payment technology provider and integrator of secure solutions for identification, mobile and payment ecosystems, have partnered in developing a biometric payment card for the Brazilian market. The card, which features Fingerprints’ proven biometric technology, will offer new levels of contactless security, convenience and hygiene.

The cards, manufactured by Valid, will feature Fingerprints’ second-generation T-Shape® (T2) sensor module and software platform. This ensures compliance with Mastercard’s latest Fingerprint Sensor Evaluation Process. The biometric payment card was unveiled at Sao Paulo’s Febraban Tech event in June 2024.

Despite consistent and significant contactless payment growth in Brazil since the pandemic, there are still consumer concerns around security. The region’s preference for contactless, combined with its familiarity with biometric technology, demonstrates the ecosystem’s readiness for the next generation of payment cards.

According to Brazil’s National Monetary Council Resolution 3694/09, financial institutions must ‘ensure the integrity, reliability, security and confidentiality of transactions, services and products’. By leveraging a unique physical characteristic to authenticate payments, new levels of security are achieved with biometric payment cards. This can help banks align with regulation and reduce in-store payment fraud, and the associated costs of both. Banks that lead the way in payment innovation are also afforded an attractive brand image.
