Sberbank launches ‘pay-with-a-glance’ tech

Russian banking and financial services company Sberbank now offers biometrical banking transactions. Sberbank’s smart display can now use voice and visual biometrics to confirm banking transactions and purchases. With the SberPortal smart display and SberBox Top camera set-top box there’s no need for passwords for confirming payments. The user will be asked to look into the camera and say a six-digit code. If the face and voice match, the payment is complete. In case the biometrics do not work, the user can get a QR code sent to their mobile device to show the camera and confirm who they are that way. Read more

“We are consistently improving our devices and technology in order to streamline the customer journey as much as possible and make using our devices simple and convenient. Face and voice payment confirmation on Sber devices equipped with a camera is genuine know-how for household devices. It is a level of convenience and, at the same time, protection that no smart speaker or conventional media set-top box offers. At the same time, we continue to prioritize privacy and security. The recognition technology runs on board the device, and you can delete facial recognition vectors without a trace or remove saved bank cards at any time.”
