Sberbank plans to remove from use credit cards, passwords, and implement a new identification system.
It is possible that soon we all will put on a huge hook: Sberbank wants to take lifelong control of the Russians with the help of biometrics, replacing plastic cards with pin codes for this method of identification. This method is used by visa offices – when you open a visa you must submit your biometric data, and this is done primarily to create safe conditions in the country where the tourist enters. In the case of the crime Commission, the time for search is drastically reduced. But for what it is necessary in the banking system?
For anybody not a secret that Sberbank is the largest financial entity in Russia, so the number of clients with him that no one yet can not compete VTB significantly behind in all indicators. Because of the Russian banks of the savings Bank citizens trust the most, to talk about the care of clients to other members is not necessary. Therefore, the conglomerate allows not only to shamelessly write off the fee with a credit card for withdrawing money (which was punished), but to introduce a system that may not be accepted by many customers. We are talking about the palm scanner and face. Such a way, in the Bank’s system will store not only the data that has legal effect, but biometric.
Of course, this has its advantages: if necessary, Sberbank will be able to provide law enforcement authorities information about a person, because the database will contain more information than the investigators or forensic experts. But on the other hand, it will force the inhabitants of Russia live in constant fear.
