All these things are good if you do not care about security. It's that simple.
If you wanna log into windows, use your thumb.. groovy. Or a retina scan. Awesome.
but logging into a bank? Up yours biometrics...
The only secure way to remain secure is to use something that is inside your brain. Simple. Because the only way then to get it is to crack open your
skull with words and scoop out that info.. and you need to be alive and awake and there and present for that...
Finger prints ID you specifically, after the fact. Or to imply you were somewhere, but we've seen that fail more and more recently.
But I do despair at people who think that someone is snooping on your finger prints.. oh joy, they can do anything now they have a finegr print..
what I really think this is, is someone trying hard to come up with a way to use a pretty neat technology. They built it, but they're damned if they
can work out a good way to use it.
And it is neat, if you stop being scared, and stop thinking it will be secure. I know I am anything but secure with my passwords.. but then I don't
actually have anything worth taking or anything at all really. apart from some forums and a few quid each fortnight. There is absolutely no single
person on this planet who could or would impersonate me in any believable manner for so little. So my fingers are safe.
So no, not for your credit card. That's as stupid as trusting Basil from Nigeria, or the king of Sudan with a billion dollars in a bank just for you.
And no, no one is using your fruit product to steal your ID. YOU are a bee in a hive. You are not that important on your own.
but hey if it lets me log onto ATS easier, man I'd use it. Or if I can log onto youtube easier.. do it!
Those clunky passwords are always getting stuck on the sides of those log in boxes dont you know...
