Have you guys hoppend on to the biometrics bandwagon? Huge growth throghout the sector and next year is going to be even crazier.
>>
What are some of the companies you've got your eye on at the moment OP?
>>
Fingerprint cards, IDEX, Precise biometrics and next biometrics are that i have looked at, got my money on the FPC since its the biggest and maybe get some Next when I liquidate other stuff early next year.
>>

some /biz/tard hopped on next and bashed fpc non stop in a thread a month ago. He is nowhere to be seen by now though. Im in FPC from 90 @3000 shares. Been (day)trading PREC (successfully) as well. But price, idea and next are shit companies when it comes to generating cash (atm)

Fingerprints aren't the future of security sadly.

>>970375
Xiaomi confirmed...!

Gratis alla!

The human mind is incapable of understanding exponential growth.

are you the next troll? 120 support level broken and plummeting...

I used the fingerprint scanner on my Galaxy S5, but after I lasered my eyes I had to wash my hands to drop my eyes every half hour. And it stopped recognizing my fingerprint.

But as always, biometrics can't replace a password. It can replace the username. Because you can't change it normally so if it gets stolen you're in trouble if it would be used as a password.

use ur tiny brain

combinations will be used when extra security is needed...
>>
>>973452
besides, synaptics sensors suck... dont invest in SYNA for their fingerprint sensors...
>>
>>973543
>>973545
Or you should use your tiny brain. Your fancy biometrics end up as a string of numbers once digitalized. Which can be stolen and copied. It doesnt matter how fancy your scanner is.
>>
>>973576
ever heard of micro characteristics? these change over time thus a fingerprint is not constant during a lifetime due to sweat pores changing places constantly during your lifetime. Besides... Fingerprint matching is done offline... Its very hard to simply hack but a first year CS student like you probably has no idea.
>>
>>973581
Ever heard of skimming? Probably not if you dont even have a job yet.
>>
>>973576
besides you didn't even counter my argument, 2 passwords are better than one. Add in an iris scanner or voice recognition and its basically unhackable.
>>
>>973582
top kek if you think you can skim a fingerprint scan, this isn't harry potter.
>>
>>973595
So your magical device can scan it, but the ones of other people cant. I guess this is harry potter.
>>
>>973600
the biometric smartcard obviously creates a one time payment unique payment number thus digital skimming wouldn't make sense.
