The security of the smartphones has been taken to biological with the fingerprint scanner. The Apple iPhone started to have this feature but they are more secured than we could think. The recent rivalry of Apple with the FBI regarding the unlocking the phone to reveal the customer’s privacy in a case is well known for its consequences. That at least assures customer information privacy.
What about fingerprint scanner in Android smartphones?
I once happen to see a meme of a person boasting about his new phone’s fingerprint security feature and NSA recording his information for future criminal record verification purposes. It is obviously true that the national security agencies of the countries might be spying on the fingerprint scanner impressions of the smartphone users.
This spying might help us provide us more security but, what if it is taken into the hands of hackers. The hacker groups like Anonymous are known to be having the powerful hacking mechanisms including the super hardware and software that could trace any digital device connected to the internet in no time.
Android phones, as we know about of today’s are more feature rich and are grown powerful. The hardware improvement like the OIS cameras and fingerprint sensors, eyerish scanners are making them more lucrative at affordable prices.
The technology is a sword with two sided sharp edges. Those who use it wisely for good sake will be benefited and those who use it for bad sake will be more benefited hurting the good ones privacy and disturbing their lives. Be wise and be safe while using smartphones. Do not install unnecessary and unverified publisher applications on the device.
This article is not to scare you but to warn you once before using the extremities of today’s handful technologies. All the best and happy using fingerprint sensors safely on your smartphones.
