London, Barcelona, 13th January 2017 – Marking its presence at Mobile World Congress 2017, MYPINPAD, an enabler of multi-factor authentication for unsecured touchscreen devices such as mobile phones and tablets, will launch an exclusive new whitepaper examining the role and potential of PIN on mobile devices to authenticate transactions.
2017 will see significant growth and adoption of mobile payments. In Europe alone the number of consumers using a mobile device for payments has tripled from 18% to 54% since 2015. The use of PIN to authenticate these transactions on mobiles is imminent.
For bricks and mortar stores, the growth of mobile points of sale (mPOS) to improve customer experience is continuing. Research earlier this year suggests that, by 2021, 20% of all retail transactions will be done on mPOS and that one third of all POS devices will be mobile. The potential of PIN on mobile has never been clearer.
