PayPal Touch ID will make online shopping more secure and easier than ever, using fingerprint recognition technology.

Recently, the online payment giant introduced One Touch Buying. After logging in once, online shoppers are then able to use their PayPal account to purchase items wherever they go on the web. This service is also available across multiple devices. Paypal One Touch allows shoppers to purchase with just one touch or click. After the addition of the new feature, vendors such as Stub Hub saw sales on their sites rise by 50 percent.

Now, Paypal Touch ID allows iPhone users to log into their Paypal accounts with the touch of a finger, eliminating the need to remember and re-enter a password multiple times. Paypal users simply touch to log in and then shop anywhere on the web without stopping to log in again.
