MasterCard want the same technology on their credit or debit cards to make the contactless payment secure. Fingerprint sensor can eliminate the possibility that someone may steal your card and just use it. The Zwipe MasterCard payment card is the first fingerprint authenticated contactless payment card. The card is integrated with a biometric sensor.

To use the card, owner simply have to place their thumb on the fingerprint sensor when they doing a contactless payment transaction. If the fingerprint is not registered as authorized owner, the purchase won't be processed. Where do it get its power?
