What is palm vein pattern recognition?

Palm vein pattern recognition uses harmless near infrared light (think TV remote) to capture the pattern of veins in your palm. The technology looks for flowing blood, and is not affected by cuts or dirt on the palm to get an accurate reading. Furthermore, the sensor is contactless to ensure optimal hygeine. Palm vein patterns are secure because you can’t leave traces of your palm vein patterns like you can with fingerprints, and recreating a hand with flowing blood is practically impossible (not to mention creepy).

How secure is my data?

Security is our number 1 priority. We use an intricate system of encryption and verification to make sure that no one gets access to your data. We’ve partnered with Global Payments to secure credit card information on separate servers, and all biometric data is doubly encrypted before being passed with SSL.
