I've just paid for my shopping using my fingerprints at Costco! anyone else? watch

    • Thread Starter

    Went shopping as usual today at Costco and they have new technology that allows you to pay using your fingerprints, they are actually using it now but it's only been in place for a few weeks apparently, they want to test how well people adapt to it and it may stay in place, not that it will be compulsory though, you're still able to use the usual checkout if you want.

    They asked me if I wanted to try it, I felt uneasy but pressured that I felt I had to so being a good citizen I used my fingerprints to pay for my shopping, it was actually quite fun and I would do it again.

    just wondering now thoguh would my fingerprints be stored onto a database of theirs or something? not that I'm bothered lol, just curious.

    anyone else here ever paid using fingerprints?
