As promised by PayPal at the WMC 2014 held at Barcelona in the month of February, PayPal has launched the biometric authentication system, in 25 odd countries.
The biometric authentication system launched for Samsung Galaxy S5 users will help them to login to various apps and websites from mobile, access their accounts, view balance and much more. According to PayPal this is more secure way of logging in.
Look what John Lunn from PayPal developer network has to say about the service
Customers can use their finger to pay with PayPal from their new Samsung Galaxy S5 because the FIDO Ready software on the device securely communicates between the fingerprint sensor on their device and PayPal’s service in the cloud. The only information the device shares with PayPal is a unique encrypted key that allows PayPal to verify the identity of the customer without having to store any biometric information on PayPal’s servers.
It has also launched PayPay apps for Gear 2 and Gear Fit that lets users to check-in to pay with PayPal in eight countries, as it promised at the MWC 2014 earlier this year. It also lets users check their PayPal balance, get payment notifications and save offers from local businesses.
