Token is a biometric ring that will help eliminate the pin numbers and passwords. It aims to be the one place where all of your digital keys live—credit cards, house keys, website credentials, transit cards, car keys, your access badge, etc. The team behind Token partnered with companies like Microsoft, Mastercard, HID, and Visa to enable many scenarios where consumers can use Token ring.
