The risk of face and finger identification

Link: https://www.kaspersky.com/blog/face-unlock-insecurity/21618/

Everyone knows passwords suck. They’re either too easy to guess or too hard to remember, and password leaks can cause all kinds of pain. Although biometric identification may be less prone to theft and spoofing than passwords, it’s still vulnerable to hacking. Everyone can be easily fooled by photos and you can even use Play-Doh to get a fingerprint, right?

even the biometrics can be hacked! there was a video showing some german hackers bypassing the Iris Scanning of the Galaxy S8.

Have a look:

There's one thing people should finally realize - everything is hackable. There is no completely safe way of protecting something in a cloud except not using it. Of course fingerprint identification is not completely safe, but still, one should go a really really long way to recreate a finger just to unlock someones phone. 

@NicolasaTim - I'm still using good old passwords and plan to use them as long as possible.

That's crazy! I wonder how'd they come up with that idea. People today are very smart and talented when it comes to doing mischievous acts.

I think you don't even know about the present conditions of some countries like the Indian subcontinent and some African states. They also trust that they actually lag behind 100 years than Americans. And that's why it's normal for them to believe that those Biometric system is much more modern !

"There's one thing people should finally realize - everything is hackable. There is no completely safe way of protecting something in a cloud except not using it" - This. The hackers will catch up to new technology everytime, sooner rather than later. 

Maybe a combination of old and new ID protection can do the trick at least for the time being.
