Security is a big deal in financial services; essentially providers of every description want to know you are who you say you are. For a variety of reasons fingerprint technology, which is by all accounts unique to each person, it not widely available. However most of us possess a key to a car. BMW have come up with a few options for their car key, which they are trying out. Anyone with a newish BMW will already know that a traditional ignition key is a thing of the past; the “key” is more of a small remote control device that needs to be within the car whilst driving. As ever, BMW have taken this a step further – using the key as an information device key. Here is a short video showing the ability to use the key as a replacement to a debit card, hotel door card key and a Bluetooth device to check the car status for fuel, if it is locked, where it is parked and what if anything needs servicing.
