MasterCard unveils ‘selfie’ security checks

USERS STILL HAVE TO ENTER CREDIT CARD INFORMATION

To use selfie pay, customers will have to download MasterCard’s app to their phone or tablet. Then, after entering their credit card information as normal during an online payment, they’ll hold their device up to their face to take a quick picture. Users will have to blink to prove that they’re not holding a photograph in front of the camera, and MasterCard says its algorithms can tell when someone is trying to fool the system by using a video.
