Ta-ta to passwords and PINs; faces and fingerprints to rule the future

Prophecy Sign:  Technology for the "Mark of the Beast"

We are now at the point where biometrics have made it feasible to implement a completely cashless society where financial transactions, (day to day buy and sell), can be conducted with the flash of a hand or the swipe of a forehead. Everything about you can now be stored digitally and accessed by way of fingerprints/iris scans or wearable electronic devises, (implantable chips).

It also forced all people, great and small, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hands or on their foreheads, so that they could not buy or sell unless they had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of its name. Revelation 13:16-17 NIV

Ta-ta to passwords and PINs; faces and fingerprints to rule the future
Facial and fingerprint recognition technologies are expected to see accelerated growth over the next five years as security applications emerge in the government, enterprise, finance, consumer and other markets. The market value of facial recognition technologies is expected to nearly double from $230 million in 2015 to $450 million in 2019; that represents a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of about 18%, according to market research firm Trend Force. Led by Apple's iPhone juggernaut, unit shipments of fingerprint sensors have grown from 316 million in 2014 to 499 million last year and will continue to increase each year to peak at 1.6 billion in 2020.

Are implanted chips the future of boarding passes?
Great strides have been made in the field of biometrics in the past few years. Some airports do, indeed, use fingerprinting and retinal scans to confirm passengers' identity, especially for the various pre-check programs. The high-tech tool that allowed Dutch tech entrepreneur Andreas Sjöström to breeze through Stockholm’s hub without a ticket, boarding pass or passport was much different than a digital fingerprinter, however. Sjöström had something called a near-field communication (NFC) chip implanted just under the skin on his hand.

Company Developing ‘Tech Tattoos’ So People Can Track Their Medical, Financial Info
Could we soon be carrying all of our medical and financial information on a tattoo? Software company Chaotic Moon has developed a “tech tattoo” that gets embedded into a person’s arm and can track a person’s financial and medical information. Eric Schneider, the company’s hardware creative technologist, explained the tattoo can monitor if a person is about to get sick. “Rather than going to the doctor once a year for your physical, this tech tattoo can be something you put on your body once a year and it monitors everything that they would do in a physical and it sends that to your doctor, and if there’s an issue they can call you,” Schneider said. “So the tech tattoos can really tie in everything into one package.
