In Brief

  • Actually pretty good idea to use palm biometrics. Other methods intersect with too many others, most of which are in sensitive sectors (fingerprint in corrections for example or IRIS in DHS)


How much is your palm print worth? If you ask Amazon, it’s about $10 in promotional credit if you enroll your palm prints in its checkout-free stores and link it to your Amazon account.

Last year, Amazon introduced its new biometric palm print scanners, Amazon One, so customers can pay for goods in some stores by waving their palm prints over one of these scanners. By February, the company expanded its palm scanners to other Amazon grocery, book and 4-star stores across Seattle.
