Goodbye, passwords. Hello, biometrics.

 

Forgetting a password, it’s happened to so many people and it can be very annoying. But this could all soon become a thing of the past as people become more comfortable with new forms of biometrics authentication.

 

A new Visa survey of 1,000 Americans exploring awareness and perceptions of biometric authentication confirms that consumers continue to have a strong interest in new biometric technologies that make their lives easier.

 

Among 1,000 Americans surveyed, the findings revealed:

  • More than the 65 percent of consumers are already familiar with biometrics1
  • 86 percent of consumers are interested in using biometrics to verify identity or to make payments
  • 70 percent of consumers believe that biometrics are easier and 46 percent think they are more secure than using passwords or PINs
