New Amazon Patent Application: Pay-By-Selfie

Amazon Wants the Patent for Pay-By-Selfie

Jason Del Rey | March 14, 2016

First, Amazon patented one-click purchasing buying. Now it wants a patent for pay-by-selfie.
The Seattle-based e-commerce company recently filed a patent application for a process that would allow shoppers to make a purchase by taking a photo and/or video of themselves rather than keying in their account password. The application is related to a separate patent Amazon holds for a technology that allows a device to authenticate a user via a photo or video, but not necessarily to complete a transaction.
