This Week's Top Mobile ID Articles: Fighting Fraud and Spotlighting Google

If there are any themes in this week’s top stories for Mobile ID World, at least one of them would have to be the fight against fraud. It’s a topic that permeates the discussion of one of the most popular recent interviews we’ve had in some time, with the Chief Technical Officer of a leading biometrics specialist:

And fighting fraud is of course also the key concern of a new platform launched by Worldpay, a company that has long been focused preventing fraud in the area of payments:

Then there’s the UKey cryptocurrency wallet, the subject of another of this week’s most popular articles. It features an embedded fingerprint sensor, helping to ensure that fraudsters can’t spend a user’s Bitcoin just by getting ahold of the wallet:
