If there is an eye-catching thing, do you accept a possibility of being attracted by an ear-catching stuff, as well? In addition, if there is a fingerprint security solution for your smartphone, they why there should not be an earprint security check for it, as well? So, what are we talking about?
Well, it is quite simple. Just let your imagination do all the hard work. Imagine a smartphone, which will automatically unlock itself as soon as you put it next to your ear. Would not that be a historic moment? We know what are smartphone addicts going to ask us next. How about you?
Is an earprint the same as a fingerprint, in terms of security, of course? Well, according to the scientists, our ears are as unique as our fingers, in terms of a printed signature they leave behind. Now, you get it. This can really be a cozy feature, which is easy, reliable, and safe to use.
Our hats off to the brilliant and innovative guys behind this solution. This can really be a turning point in the development of the next generation of modern smartphones. Be careful what kind of earrings you use, though. You already know why, don’t you? Your smartphone may not like it.
When? Why? Well, it turns out that the Apple Touch ID is not as safe as we thought it was. Why? Some busy little cyber bees managed to trick the system itself. How? For what is worth, you can use pictures of someone’s fingerprints to clone the actual fingerprint and use it for a safe passage through the Touch ID system.
It sounds simple, but it is actually a tough rocket science. You need the top quality of photos, including the right angles. At the end of the day, if someone allows him or herself a luxury to expose the fingerprints for hacker’s cloning, then does he or she have the right to complain, in the first place?
This is not supposed to be our contribution to the android paranoid behavioral patterns. However, you should be fully aware that these things are the bitter reality. Do you really need to wear the gloves, all the time? Yes and no. At least you should know that even the Touch ID cannot offer you the absolute protection.
Maybe, the moral of this story is that we should not mess with the eye scanners at the next level. There has to be a way to provide a proper protection for your smartphone with no SF scenarios and gadgets. You do not need to impress anyone. All you have to do is to be efficient. Right?
The season of bad news for iPhone 6 is far from over. The new trouble has a name, and it is called the fingerprint scan flaw. Although, it has not been fully confirmed, there is a high probability that someone can hack your iPhone by using the fingerprint feature. How? Well, you can make a fake fingerprint.
Again, how? To tell the truth, it is not the rocket science, but it is also not so simple. You need to make high quality pictures of your fingerprint from the different angles. The next thing you know your Touch ID has been hacked, and the silent uninvited guest is passing through your cyber door with no warning at all.
On the other side, you do not have to worry that much. In order for this hacking thing to be fully functional, you have to make those top quality pictures the way you want them. If a proud owner of his or her fingertips allows for this to happen, then we do not have any rights to complain. Right?
Can we really do something about it, when it comes to proper prevention? We cannot use the gloves all day long, can we? Or maybe, Apple should do something about it, in order to improve the Touch ID security features. Either way, we need to change so we can play safe, as it is supposed to be. Right?
