MasterCard will let you use selfies to authorise credit card payments

MasterCard wants to remove the hassle of you having to remember passwords when making a credit card payment.

To do this, the company is introducing a smartphone application which verifies your credit card transaction through the taking of a selfie.

The MasterCard app allows you to use your fingerprint or picture of your face to authorise a transaction, with the latter requiring you to blink into your phone’s camera to make sure a criminal is not using a photo of you to trick the system.

The video below shows the payment application in action.
