Withdraw Cash With Your Palm At A Biometric ATM

Withdraw Cash With Your Palm At A Biometric ATM

Japanese bank Ogaki Kyoritsu is introducing machines that allow customers to withdraw their money without a card.

Ogaki Kyoritsu Bank in Japan has announced that in September it will be introducing the country’s first ATM that lets people withdraw cash and access other services just by scanning their palm. Other ATMs equipped with biometric readers ask customers for extra verification to withdraw money but this is the first machine that doesn’t require them to use their card or bank book as well.

Nikkei reports that customers wanting to use the new ATMs will need to register at a bank branch, where their palm will be scanned. Ogaki Kyoritsu Bank hopes the new machines will be more convenient for its customers as they will still have access to their money if they lose their card, which would be useful in the event of a natural disaster or other unforeseen circumstances.
