The Android evaluation is currently in an advanced stage and its certification will follow in the beginning of 2020. 

MYPINPAD is a global leader in personal authentication solutions designed to enable PIN based payments on commercially available smartphones and tablets. The proprietary technology secures and protects the input of sensitive information such as cardholder PIN, on touchscreens creating a trusted environment. MYPINPAD’s innovative solution set removes the reliance of secure payment hardware for personal authentication; reducing cost, reducing complexity, promoting rapid adoption, and leveraging connected capabilities of smart devices.

PCI SPoC certification is the culmination of 7 years financial and technical investment in the thinking, evangelising and development of a multi-factor authentication platform. Working closely with Brightsight this achievement signifies the realisation of our vision that everyday smartphones and tablets can perform secure PIN on Mobile transactions.
