LONDON, UK. June 8, 2016 – MYPINPAD, a UK based technology company, which enables multi-channel and multi-factor authentication on unsecure devices such as mobile phones and tablets via the Cardholder PIN, today announced it has appointed Robert Courtneidge to its Board of Directors.
Robert brings over 25 years of experience in the cards and payments industries to MYPINPAD and has worked closely with the Payments Services Regulator, HM Treasury and the Financial Conduct Association and other compliance and industry bodies.

This has led many to question whether traditional authentication methods, such as usernames and passwords, are still secure. In a recent survey, 80% of consumers preferred biometrics over usernames and passwords.
