BMO To Be First With ‘Selfie’ Pay In Canada

"More secure and more convenient than passwords"

Bank of Montreal will be the first financial institution in Canada to sign on to Mastercard’s new selfie pay system. It allows users to make online purchases and confirm their identity through fingerprints or by taking a photo with their smartphones. It’ll begin for corporate card users this summer. Close to 8,000 online merchants in Canada have signed up for the service.
