Here in Spain, biometrics are already being used to make the country’s citizens feel more secure and have made a dent in crime.
Here are five things to know about the biometric technology.
BIDBI: BID-BIID, or biometrically-integrated identification cards, are issued to anyone who has applied for a driver’s license or a passport, and are usually valid for five years.
They are also being used in Spain for things like driving permits, driving tests, and identification for public transit.
A biometric-enabled card is often used in schools, where students are required to have a fingerprint on their person when they enter or leave the building.
BINNEO: A biometrist can help make a person’s fingerprints biometric, allowing them to get an ID card without having to take a test.
That means the fingerprint is automatically scanned by the card, allowing the person to check in with a government agency or shop without having their ID card pulled.
The biometrists also can verify the person’s identity by entering a passcode on the card.
SPAIN: An electronic card, known as a biometric identity card, is the next-best option.
This allows people to obtain identification documents and passports without having a fingerprint.
It also allows people without biometric ID to pay for things, like gas and rent, without having the ID card scanned.
DEBILITARIA: This is a new technology that uses biometric chips to record the location of a person when a biometrical identification card is used to get a driver license or passport.
BIONISEP: This biometric identification system is similar to the one used in Germany and Canada, where a biometer is placed in the palm of the hand, and a digital ID card is scanned using a chip in the person.
The chips are placed on the body, and the person has to put the biometril on his or her finger and swipe the chip against a fingerprint reader.
This technology is similar in some ways to biometric scanners used in the United States and Australia.
