RiskPointer technology enables payments to be made by mobile phone, safe and cost-effectively. The identification and authentication of the RiskPointer payer has been made very easy on behalf of the user, and, thus, a very straightforward approval of transactions can be made. The technology functions without a hardware base or SIM card encryption technology, and is, thus, highly scalable to a large number of devices without the need for any device-specific modifications. Payment is highly cost-effective, combined with effective risk management, which is based on the real-time measurements of several gauges. A simple pin-code is sufficient to confirm transactions. The user can choose their pin-code via the program start-up.
