Implications - An innovative point-of-sale and login solution, one-step authentication features enable seamless use of mobile technology for communicative and digital payment purposes. By eliminating a time-consuming step in the process, brands are likely to gain a higher percentage of users based on convenience alone. Improved security measures offered, such as biometric authentication tools, temper fears around the safeguarding of valuable consumer payment data.
