“Security is a transcendental factor for the BCR, so when the client performs the card digitization process, the system asks for the security mechanism that is active for the app, whether it is a dynamic password or facial biometrics”, stated Guillermo Gayle Monge , Manager of Means of Payment of the BCR.

In addition to the above, when customers use Beep, tokenization is automatically activated, which is the technology that replaces the sensitive information of the card number with a unique digital identifier, which allows purchases to be made without exposing the real number of the card. card.
