I read about credit cards which use fingerprint authentication instead of a PIN. Can I get a card like this in Switzerland?

Hi there,

Norwegian biotechnology company Zwipe has developed a credit card which incorporates a fingerprint scanner. Mastercard has plans to launch pilots using this technology. However, these cards are not yet in use either in Switzerland or elsewhere.

Best regards from Moneyguru
