As of now, there's a growing market for biometric solutions to help consumers make secure mobile payments, but ToneTag is a start-up that's introducing something entirely new. ToneTag uses sound-based technology in order to help shoppers make payments from their smartphones.

This technology from ToneTag has now been implemented in to the MoboMoney NFC payment platform, in order to make it easy for consumers in India to carry out contactless transactions in participating retail environments.

This kind of sound-based technology is also being used in other areas. This innovation from ToneTag reminds of the way Google's OnHub Internet route can be set up with other devices by emitting a certain sound to link them together.
