While it’s true that biometric security can be hacked, it’s a difficult thing to do without being noticed. More people are wanting to log in and authorize mobile payments with biometrics because of the convenience, but this is also turning out to be a much more secure way to handle online business than pins and passwords. Why has this technology surged in both availability and popularity?
86% of Americans want to use biometrics to authorize mobile payments. This may be because the constant news of data breaches is growing worrisome and people want to protect themselves the best they can. Most people don’t realize that biometrics are so easily compromised, though, so it may be lulling them into a false sense of security.
Regardless, biometrics are becoming more widely used as the technology progresses. Current mobile technology weighs user behavior along with biometric readers, adding a layer of protection. Learn more about the future of biometric security below!
