"From today people can authorise payment simply by using their fingerprints, with the NFC chip on their phone communicating with TfL readers on the London underground, buses and rail networks.".. not true!! There is no need to do this. You just have to tap
and pay. No need to authorise.
Going to be interesting how many phones get damaged doing this of course.
Thanks for that clarification Raymond. Phone is in passive, card emulation mode for the TfL use case. I combined two use cases in one sentence, got a bit ahead of myself there!
Well when I used it this morning in London for a number of trips, it certainly forced me to use TouchID to authorise when I tapped in and out...not the most elegant or quick process and I wasnt the most popular commuter with fellow passengers - certainly
took longer than using an Oyster card or a contactless payment card....
Alistair Newton, congrats on being one of the first to use the system and thanks for the update. Sorry to hear that's the way it is working. However, better safe than sorry. The important thing is it's up and running, something we've been trying to achieve
for a decade now. Great to hear of your experience!
