Biometrics Are A Poor Lock and Key

in #security3 years ago (edited)

This is why I NEVER use biometrics to unlock my phone, or any other device... if I can help it. Once the data is stolen, you cannot change it. Your fingerprints are always your fingerprints and your face is your face. Once those are compromised, you can't get a new one!

Quick question - would you allow posting SciFi content in the SF community in German as well?

If you were to provide even a rough Google translation to English, yes.

OK, I can translate the whole text in English via Deepl/Google, but in English it may not sound like literature anymore :) But worth a try!

Sounds like a good plan, thanks!
