PayPal's system works by letting S5 owners log-in and authorize payments with a swipe over the smartphone's home button (Watch video Demo below). No password entry fields, no dotted-out passwords, and hopefully, no worries are to be found from now on. As PayPal has always been heavily scrutinized for its security practices, the company is enthusiastically communicates the system's robustness. 


"Customers can use their finger to pay with PayPal from their new Samsung Galaxy S5 because the FIDO Ready software on the device securely communicates between the fingerprint sensor on their device and PayPal's service in the cloud. The only information the device shares with PayPal is a unique encrypted key that allows PayPal to verify the identity of the customer without having to store any biometric information on PayPal's servers." - John Lunn, Chief of PayPal X UK.
