Instead of Making, issuing and using ATM Cards, finger prints should be used to draw money, as the Finger prints are unique to every human being. This can be referred to the country's Person database (SSN) if any. Banks will register the finger print in the bank system when opening an account. So how easy and secure a person went to an ATM, place his/her thumb on the reader and entered the security code and did his transaction.

Reward: If you liked my Idea say "YES"

This is a very good idea, and im sure that it will be used in the future, but like having cards, this can still be forged. Fingerprints can be burnt off and cloned by a plastic rubber, so just like cloning cards, this can be manipulated.

This is really a great idea but think the other way. What if you cut your finger which you have identified and you are in deadly need of money. You wouldn't be able to withdraw a dime from your account.

Yes it is a good idea. To use finger print for ATM machine instead of ATM card. Some ATM machine supported finger print option for selected option. But for that we need ATM card. If we use ATM machine without ATM card for that we just registration our fingerprint in bank. And you can easily use your finger print for Withdraw money or any facility of ATM machine. It is one of the type of biometric security.

Not a bad idea, but if you are going to go to that trouble why not do an Iris scan with over 700 points of comparison vs. less than 50 points of comparison for a finger print. Think of a number 50 numbers long vs a number 700+ numbers long ---> MUCH more secure. No need to take off your gloves in cold climates, no cut fingers problems. Good Luck....

Very true, but there is a problem with every suggestion anybody will make, and that is that there is always an underlying concern for a small percentage of the community, what if they're blind from an accident causing their iris to change shape and distort, there is just too many problems with every security measure like these. Using a finger print (loss of fingers?) using a card (loss of card?) using the iris (loss of eye?)

LOL, Yeh Dino, I suppose there will always be problems with any idea for a small segment of society. Captain Hook with an eye patch would have to go inside and see a teller.....LOL

I think this idea with be good for those persons who are really busy with their work giving them stress throughout the day. But we must consider some problems that would occur if this would be a reality.

What if you die (car accident, airplane crash etc) and your close relatives need to access your funds from your bank account? Probably the banks have solutions for these kind of situations (dead, missing person), but depends in which country you live and how long will take to get money out from banks. Or, if somebody is cutting your finger just to get the money, what a pain! Criminal minds are everywhere...

It was a very great idea and for that I want to say yes. There is also a main advantage that no one can cheat any of the account and also it can only be operated by the account holder or an card holder.
