The Beginning of Biometric Technology in Smartphones.
Before, the technology used in smartphone was set up so that you get the privacy you want with just a simple click of the keypads of your phone. A simple number combination is used, and somehow it evolved into something else through the use of slide and swipe of the screen using certain patterns. It was the most sophisticated kind of privacy protection for smartphones then, but in just a couple of months, who would have thought that using biometrics can be integrated to the technology of what the smartphone is today?
Have you ever imagined getting your fingerprint scanned so that you can unlock your phone? It was definitely very unimaginable and something that is just a work of science fiction movies. But such thing is now a reality. In fact, the fingerprint that serves as something that protects your privacy, is even dubbed as still in its infancy. So there is still a big room for the kind of technology to even boom into something else that no minds can fathom.
The use of biometrics of your fingerprint is first popularized by Apple phones and then was followed by Samsung manufactured phones. Many were very abuzz with regards to the technology that has been added to the smartphone. Indeed, there was a hesitation to the belief that such a thing can be done, yet the fingerprint scanning technology has boomed into something that is becoming a worldwide trend. Surely, in no time, not only will high end phones get the capability to have fingerprint sensors installed in them; with the advancement and many research regarding the use of the biometrics, the technology is slowly becoming much more affordable to produce and there will come a time that even mid-tier phones will have one.
The reasons why such a technology is becoming very popular, is because it highly protects the phone from unauthorized individual to access it. There is really a 100 percent privacy protection when phones have the fingerprint scanning technology. This is in line with the reality that fingerprints are unique and no other person aside from yourself have the same fingerprint. This will enable you to have a hold of your phone so that you can control who gets to see the contents of what is inside. Indeed, there are many people now who are very privy about what information they want others to see.
By just pressing your thumb or any finger on the sensor, or by just swiping your finger on the sensor within a fraction of a second, you get to unlock your phone. That is definitely total convenience. You will really forget about tapping the correct number combination so that you can unlock your phone, or you simply do away with swiping the right pattern because you have the unique way of unlocking and keeping the privacy of your phone secured—with your fingerprint. With just the simple touch of your fingerprint, and with just a few seconds, you get to experience what it is to have that technology to make sure that you are a hundred percent away from unauthorized people accessing your precious device.
