It is worth mentioning that users can choose to register with a single palm or two palms. Compared with the current mainstream biometric technologies such as fingerprints, this technology has advantages in privacy, security, contactlessness, and rapid recognition, but the recognition accuracy and other information are still unknown. In addition, it is currently only supported by Amazon’s own store, and it is unclear whether domestic companies will introduce this technology .

Naija Tech News understands that although it has not disclosed which partners will adopt Amazon One palmprint recognition technology, the company said it is currently in active discussions with a number of potential customers.
