Two-Thirds of Consumers Prefer Credit Card Verification by Fingerprint, According to Unisys Poll

These findings, that show a growing comfort level among respondents with biometric security, complement results of the April 2010 Unisys Security Index which revealed similar findings in most countries surveyed. For example, the Unisys Security Index found that 93 percent of Americans are willing to supply a biometric to increase physical safety at airports.
