NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - October 07, 2015) - SmartMetric, Inc. (OTCQB: SMME) -- In the ongoing fight and arms race against identity and financial fraud, SmartMetric has created the world's first EMV chip payments card that uses a person's fingerprint to activate the cards EMV chip prior to a transaction taking place. If it is not you then simply the card will not work, said today the company President & CEO, Chaya Hendrick.

This is a major leap forward in card security. It brings the power of biometric security to the payments card giving any place anywhere biometric authentication to every card transaction. The brilliant thing about our technology is that it works with the new global EMV chip payment card system and doesn't require a separate biometric reading device to function. It has a full and powerful fingerprint reader inside the card itself. This has taken us years of painstaking and brilliant engineering to manufacture components such as the Cortex processor, memory, power management system etc down to an unbelievable small scale. Everything we have done in manufacturing our biometric card has involved creating breakthroughs in the physical dimensions of components while also using the most advanced flexible circuit board to obtain almost tissue paper thickness. This is not to mention the incredible hurdle we have overcome in mounting the miniature super thin components on our circuit board in a mass production assembly process, said the company President & CEO.

There are more than 3.4 billion EMV chip cards in use around the world. The United States is now issuing these EMV chip cards en mass, bringing the USA in line with the major advanced countries globally. SmartMetric brings an even greater level of security to the EMV chip card technology by adding biometric authentication and activation inside the card itself.
