China is heaven for mobile payments. The 84% of Chinese respondents said that they used some form of digital payment systems to pay for online purchases in the past six months, according to Nielsen’s “Global Connected Commerce” report.

High mobile payment penetration in China also means that it is a market ripe to be taken advantage of. One of the main security methods on most phones is the fingerprint. It is used for everything from unlocking your phone to confirming purchases.

Leading mobile manufacturers Huawei, Google, OPPO, VIVO, Xiaomi, Lenovo, Sony, ZTE, Coolpad and HTC are using Precise Biometrics’ software to secure mobile payments from fraud and identity theft.
