Bank ATM uses QR codes for cash access

Here is the Wall Street Journal story from today. They had a photo that looked like a bitcoin transaction and I got excited until I read the story. They are just using a QR code in an app for withdrawl authorization instead of a magstripe card. They should have mentioned that bitcoin has been doing this for years.
Here is the story:
Withdraw Cash Without a Card? There’s an App for That BMO Harris Bank initiative gives new meaning to ‘smartphone withdrawal’ in bid to cut fraud
By RITA TRICHUR March 15, 2015 6:38 p.m. ET
The latest gambit by banks to reduce card fraud? Get rid of the card. Chicago-based BMO Harris Bank, a unit of Canada’s Bank of Montreal, on Monday will launch the U.S.’s biggest cardless ATM network, allowing customers to withdraw cash by using their smartphones. The bank says the technology will speed up transactions and reduce fraud. The move will give Bank of Montreal an early lead in one segment of the growing mobile-payments business in the U.S. The Canadian bank’s push comes as lenders seek to cut costs and bolster security as customers increasingly use smartphones to manage their finances. In the U.S., banks face heightened pressures to wring savings by pruning their branch networks while cutting down on card fraud. BMO Harris Bank says that to access cash without using a debit card, customers can prep a transaction before arriving at an ATM. To do this, they log onto a mobile-banking app on their smartphones, enter the amount to be withdrawn, walk up to an enabled ATM and press the mobile cash button. After the customer holds up the QR code on their smartphone to a reader, the ATM dispenses the requested cash. The bank says a mobile cash transaction takes 15 seconds, compared with 45 seconds for a debit-card withdrawal, and is safer because the customer doesn’t need to insert his or her card. That eliminates the possibility of “skimming” devices that allow fraudsters to pull information from a card’s magnetic strip in a compromised ATM. Also, no card information is stored on the phone, and the bank can remotely delete the app if a device is lost or stolen. Information passed between the phone and the ATM is encrypted. Once a withdrawal is complete, the transaction’s metadata vanishes and can’t be reused, the bank says. Customers who also use passwords or biometric fingerprint identification to access their smartphones benefit from an extra layer of security. BMO is rolling out the service first in the U.S. rather than in its Canadian home market because card security south of the border lags behind that of Canada. “We know that there have been instances in the past in the financial sector where there has been skimming,” said Connie Stefankiewicz, head of North American Channel Strategy and Solutions at Bank of Montreal. “Cards get lost. Cards get stolen. PINs get skimmed. All of those things are actually mitigated by the use of the smartphone.” General-purpose debit, prepaid and ATM fraud totaled $1.7 billion in 2012 in the U.S., according to a 2013 Federal Reserve Payments Study. The average fraudulent ATM cash withdrawal was $217. The so-called mobile cash service initially will be available on 750 ATMs, increasing to 900 ATMs by June, the bank says. BMO Harris Bank, which is ranked No. 2 in both Illinois and Wisconsin by deposit market share—behind J.P. Morgan Chase & Co. and U.S. Bank National Association, respectively, according to Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. data—has more than 2 million personal and commercial customers, 600 branches and more than 1,300 ATMs. Payments security has been a growing issue following data breaches at retailers such as Home Depot Inc. and Target Corp. Earlier this month, The Wall Street Journal reported that fraudsters were putting stolen credit-card data into Apple Inc. iPhones enabled with Apple Pay service. Although that could make some people leery about using mobile-based cash withdrawals, BMO says the service has added security features because a customer would need the login information for the app in addition to the password or fingerprint data for their own phone. If a debit card is reported lost or stolen, BMO would deactivate the card. The app won’t accept stolen-card information. To thwart so-called phishing scams, the bank uses technology that is based on security questions and the “digital fingerprint” of a customer’s smartphone. In many other countries, including BMO’s home market of Canada, many people do their banking online or via smartphone apps. Checks, and increasingly cash, are falling out of favor with consumers due to the convenience and security of digital payments. The U.S., however, is a bit of an outlier, said Ms. Stefankiewicz. “There is still quite a high usage of cash in the U.S. relative to Canada,” she said. “In the U.S., people always have cash, I find. It is just a different approach.” Cash may be king in the U.S., but the growing popularity of app-based payments could eventually pose a competitive threat to BMO’s mobile cash service. Other U.S. banks are also offering cardless ATMs. Rosemont, Ill.-based Wintrust Financial Corp., which operates in the Chicago area and southern Wisconsin, offers the service on its entire fleet of 195 ATMs. It began rolling out the service last August. “There’s no way to skim the card,” said Tom Ormseth, head of digital channels for Wintrust. “They don’t just have to do it at the walk-up ATMs, you can also use it at the drive-through.” Los Angeles-based City National Corp., which is being acquired by Royal Bank of Canada, completed a test of cardless ATMs in July 2014. The company doesn’t have immediate plans to expand the program, said Cary Walker, senior vice president of corporate communications, in an email. BMO Harris Bank will also open its first “smart branch”—effectively a teller-less location—in Chicago on Monday. The branch will house ATMs that allow customers to communicate with remote tellers via video conference—a move that it says will eventually facilitate round-the-clock branch banking. Another four smart branches are in the works for this year, mostly in the Chicago area. The model will allow customers to use video tellers to conduct basic transactions, including deposits, withdrawals and bill payments.
