This year I decided to get myself a new mobile phone. I am currently hesitating between the new iPhone and the latest Samsung flagships. I heard that both these devices possess fingerprint scanners. It can be used for unlocking the mobile phone and it is specific to the user. I was wondering what the other application of this technology are. I read online that these scanners can be used to validate payments online or authenticate access on certain sites. Can anyone elaborate?
Usage for the embbeded fingerprint reader in smartphones
Fingerprint scanning is one form of authentication for the purposes of any sort of business which requires identity protection. This technology can be used for making purchases, banking, establishing accounts, securing information, restricting access to all sorts of information, and etc. It can simplify the way you do regular types of business on a daily or monthly basis. Though it provides added security, there is still substantial risk. You should consider this just one of many methods you employ to protect your identity and assets.
