Biometric technology is amazing because when it is working perfectly it really is one of the best ways to ensure an individual’s identity is verified. I can’t guess your fingerprint for example. Sure, I can try to mimic it like you have seen in the movies but generally this isn’t very practical.
An easier way to hack your fingerprint however is shown below – Redditor iZeeHunter posted the image Wednesday, along with the caption: “The new iPhone 5S provides unmatched security with its new Fingerprint lock, which makes your personal data even harder to reach!”
Whether this photo hurts Apple or not remains to be seen but a way around such a “hack” is to use multifactor authentication such as finger and voice or finger and password. Of course this would add increased levels of complexity – something Apple tried to reduce in the first place.
