The password is dying, long live fingerprints!
It is so tedious trying to remember that one password you use on all your email and social networking accounts isn't it? Is it 'password' or 'abc123'? Well, fear not because soon, passwords will be a thing of the past and it'll be your fingerprints doing all the work.
Although, some of you lot are so dim you'll probably forget your fingerprints and end up haplessly jabbing at your tablets with your damp genitals.
New technology will not just include fingerprint technology, but also, voice and facial recognition as passwords are now seen as something of an old-fashioned security risk.
Apple will apparently be using fingerprint technology (which will no doubt send the Daily Mail into meltdown, suggesting that tech companies are ready to steal the tips of our fingers from us) and Android phones will be using voice recognition, iris scanners, behavioural biometrics and heartbeat reading.
Michael Barratt, head of security at PayPal, said: "It’s a case of looking beyond passwords and the best alternatives are provided by smartphones. The general view is that Apple will launch a fingerprint-enabled iPhone before the end of the year."
"The Android handset market intends to stay competitive so it’s highly likely there will be fingerprint and voice identification- enabled devices from them too in the near future."
Total Recall for all!
