PayPal will support Samsung Galaxy S5’s fingerprint scanner to make payments easier.

Soon after Samsung’s official release of the Galaxy S5 at Mobile World Conference 2014 in Barcelona, PayPal announced that it would be the first global payments company to support the fingerprint authentication technology on it.

The Next Web reported that Samsung Galaxy S5 owners would now be able to use their fingerprint to make payments at shops and merchants, both online and in-stores with just the swipe of a finger. No passwords or logins required, PayPal will be one of the easiest, quickest and safest ways to transact. The feature will be available post the launch of the device on April 11th 2014. It will be available in 26 markets, including Australia, Brazil, Hong Kong, Russia, the UK, and the US.

 

A simple swipe of your finger will let you log into your PayPal account, and you can then shop and pay while on the go. PayPal says it plans to provide a secure wallet in the cloud. It won’t store any personal information on the owner’s device. This is a killer feature that Samsung is hoping for.
