I’m just gonna go ahead and declare it, even though it’s only Tuesday, it’s this weeks sign the apocalypse is upon us.
The BBC is reporting that MasterCard has come up with a new way to keep our transactions secure.
Forget passwords, selfies are the new new thing for authenticating transactions.
You download an app, it scans your face, asks you to blink — so that it knows you’re not using a picture — and boom, you’re validated.
Marketplace is on a mission.
We believe Main Street matters as much as Wall Street, economic news is made relevant and real through human stories, and a touch of humor helps enliven topics you might typically find…well, dull.
Through the signature style that only Marketplace can deliver, we’re on a mission to raise the economic intelligence of the country—but we don’t do it alone. We count on listeners and readers like you to keep this public service free and accessible to all. Will you become a partner in our mission today?
