OXFORD, Conn., March 11, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- NXT-ID, Inc. (NASDAQ: NXTD and NXTDW) ("NXT-ID" or the "Company"), a biometric authentication company focused on the growing mobile commerce market, releases a new Wocket smart wallet video featuring David Tunnell, Chief Technology Officer of NXT-ID. Set in the manufacturing facility in Florida, David explains the benefits and features of the Wocket, currently undergoing testing and being shipped to consumers this spring.
As new competition enters the secure payment and mobile payment technology market, David explains, "A big difference between Wocket and other approaches, is that it stands alone, not dependent on any other device or network where hackers frequently attack. Your private data belongs to you and only you, and no one can access it but you, with multi-factor authentication that proves you are who you say you are."
Mr. Tunnell also goes on to say," One thing that makes our card different is that you can lose it. Unlike other approaches, we make our smart card purposefully blank by forcing it to erase itself after a successful swipe, or after 5 minutes in case the card never gets swiped. So you never need to worry about your card being stolen."
He also tells consumers, "Wockets are being built here in central Florida and we are on schedule to deliver Wockets this spring as we complete our testing. Our magnetic stripe and bar code works at every point of sale system we have tested so far."
