A Breakthrough in Turning the Plastic Credit Card Into an Advanced Secure Electronic Device

NEW YORK, March 29, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — SmartMetric, Inc. (OTCQB:SMME) – It started with a dream.  To create a safer and more secure credit card.  Over a decade ago the founder and President/CEO of SmartMetric, Chaya Hendrick realized that credit card fraud would continue to grow exponentially to the point where it would seriously impact card users and become a serious financial burden on card issuers and their merchants.

Years before anyone had even thought of using chip cards in the USA, SmartMetric set about to build a fully functional fingerprint scanner that would be used to activate the cards chip that would most importantly fit inside a card the size and thickness of a standard credit card.  It other words, the company set about to achieve what was science fiction at that point, to reduce a complex computer motherboard and its components to a super thin piece of electronics in order to fit a biometric fingerprint scanner inside a credit card.

After many years of research and development with a small yet highly advance team of engineers, SmartMetric achieved what was seen as impossible, a fully operational biometric locked and secure credit card for consumers.

“SmartMetric could have easily released a version of its biometric card a number of years ago that didn’t have its own internal power supply.  This of course would mean the card would have to stay inside a retail card reader while the fingerprint scan takes place.  Making it impossible to use in 99% of ATM’s and of course most restaurants who need to take the card to their cash register.  Instead the company wisely insisted in making sure that its biometric credit card would work across all transaction points for the convenience of consumers,” said today SmartMetric’s President and CEO, Chaya Hendrick.

“Touch your card and your fingerprint biometrics instantly unlock the card in less than a second.  Safer than a password and so much easier and quicker than entering a PIN,” said Chaya Hendrick.

The company has recently appointed experienced credit card manufacturers in the United States and South America to bring the leading SmartMetric biometric card to  credit card issuing Banks.  The SmartMetric biometric credit card is being met with a very high level of enthusiasm as the banking industry is recognizing the benefits of having and offering this technology to their customers.

SmartMetric is a United States company with its head office in Las Vegas, Nevada.  It has a team of advanced engineers in Tel Aviv, Israel and has mass manufacturing capacity in various parts of the world.  The company can now manufacture 1 million cards a month and has the capacity to increase this capacity significantly based on product demand.

The SmartMetric biometric card is protected by five (5) recently “issued” patents.  Additional patents are pending.
