Adyen Payments to release face recognition payment app

App or Craic?!

The Dutch online and mobile payment solution provider is, this Sunday, launching the Face-ID payment app, according to a video posted today on their website. The new solution enables people to make payments by scanning their face using their smartphone camera. The user’s payment data is linked with their image in a merchant’s database and, once their face has been matched, they confirm they have been identified correctly with a ‘thumbs-up;’ payment is then processed.

Sounds exciting but the legitimacy of this release is dubious with the launch date suspiciously coinciding with 1st April…
