Pay with your face at this KFC in China By

Paying for food at one KFC restaurant in China just got a lot more personal.

Forget cash, credit cards or a smartphone -- customers can now settle the bill with their face thanks to new technology unveiled on Friday.


Ant Financial, an affiliate of Chinese e-commerce giant Alibaba (BABATech30), launched the new service in the eastern city of Hangzhou. It's the latest example of the growing use of facial recognition by businesses and government agencies in the world's most populous nation.

Diners at the restaurant, a KFC brand in China known as KPro, place their order at a terminal, which then scans their face. If it matches the image on the photo ID stored in the system, the customer only has to enter their phone number and the payment goes through. (Their food is still served by a regular human.)
