Mastercard announced that its Identity Check Mobile payment technology application is now available in Mexico and Brazil following successful implementations in 14 countries around the world. The app eliminates the need for cardholders to remember passwords by using biometrics like fingerprints or facial recognition to verify a cardholder's identity, simplifying online shopping. Mastercard said it extended the service to Latin America after trials in the Netherlands, the US and Canada concluded that consumers prefer biometrics payments instead of the current password-based systems.
