G+D Convego® YOU: bringing biometrics to the payment card
The payments ecosystem is vast and diverse. Different devices, new form factors, innovations in card materials. But methods of authenticating identity have largely lacked that breadth of choice – until now. Introducing Convego® YOU: the card that knows you.
Across countries and cultures, customers enjoy innovation. It demonstrates their openness to new ideas, lets them stand out from the crowd, add a little excitement to the day. In recent years, one innovation for proving identity – the fingerprint reader – has become popular in the phone and laptop world, removing the need to enter a password or PIN.
Now, Convego® YOU lets you offer that technology to your customers in a form factor already known and trusted by billions: the payment card. Giving card issuers a true service differentiator at the prestige end of the market.

Customer lifestyles and benefits
The biometric advantages of Convego® YOU make it exceptionally useful in “out of pattern” scenarios: where additional authentication isn’t legally required, but is genuinely useful for both issuer and customer.
Activation by sleeve or phone app
A card with Convego® YOU can be activated in a choice of ways – via a secure sleeve, or with a simple phone application. And despite differences between the two major mobile operating systems, it works with both: Android and iOS.
Convego® YOU replaces traditional PINs by making the most unique of all human attributes – the fingerprint – central to the relationship, with a sensor on the card itself. It’s the same size as a conventional card – but truly different. Convego® YOU enables you to genuinely demonstrate efficiency and innovation – attracting new customers and reinforcing your existing relationship.
The most stylish memberships. The most distinctive designs. All are enjoyed by the most desirable customer segments, the most tech-savvy to the most fashion-conscious. They’re the people who build businesses, influence markets, lead opinions and shape culture.
With Convego® YOU, banks can offer a card that puts their sense of individuality first and foremost. With biometric authentication on the card itself – making the customer experience simpler and more convenient at every transaction point – Convego® YOU is the card that knows you.
