Pay By Touch uses a patent-pending process to safely encrypt PIN Debit Numbers by allowing the user to enter them with their mouse instead of key strokes. The box on the left comes up and the user clicks the first digit of their existing (no new PIN numbers required) Personal Identification Number. The box then shuffles the numbers and the user repeats the process with the second, third and fourth digit of their PIN numbers. By allowing the user to use their mouse, and by shuffling the numbers after each entry, keyloggers cannot hack into the user's keystrokes as they enter their PIN number.
