MasterCard, International Card Services, and Dutch bank ABN AMRO have partnered with each other to test fingerprint and facial recognition software in the Netherlands to verify online payments.

Under the pilot program, cardholders can download an app they connect to their credit card. Then when customers use that card to buy something online,  they receive a notification on their mobile phone through which they can authorize the payment via finger scan or selfie recognition. Customers no longer have to worry forgetting their password or a cyberthief stealing their credit card information.
