There was this “suggestion” that one day soon fingerprint sensors and alike would replace logins or passwords. Think that’s good?
Say you’re going to access PayPal or your email account or any social site you’re into – is it okay if you just use your fingerprint?
Well, while this kind of security check could save you time, there are a couple of notable disadvantages to it as well.
First, fingerprints could be “copied.” And if your fingerprints are copied, your account could be hacked – worse, your money “stolen.”
Second, with fingerprints – you lose privacy. This means, whether your account is hacked or not, you lose all of your privacy “to the service provider” at the very least. I’m sure you’ve heard of all of these “spying” issues recently. So?
Well, this act could open doors to other issues, and who knows how serious; after all, the data they’d get this time would be even more accurate to what you really are. Really.
Fingerprints still sounds good but take precautionary measures.
