How Biometric Authentication Works

Security is an ever-present concern in today’s world. Increasingly, we are seeing how biometric
authentication, such as fingerprint identification, facial recognition, or DNA, is being used to enhance security systems.

Thanks to the prevalence of smartphones with touchscreens and high-definition cameras, it’s easier than ever before to implement these additional security protocols. The general public is embracing the technology as an easy way to prevent unauthorized access to accounts. In fact, 52% of consumers want banks to add fingerprint scans to banking apps.

Stay Informed About The Latest Advancements in Biometric Identification Technology

email newsletter for biometric identification management news and updates

Join the hundreds of existing subscribers to our email newsletter and stay on top of the latest news and trends in biometric identification management technology.

Advancements in biometric identification management technology are moving so fast, it’s tough to predict just how much it will potentially change the world we live in. Biometrics are fundamentally changing identification management in a host of industries and governmental entities. There is no question that biometrics now touch virtually every  corner of the world to improve security, but what is perhaps most fascinating is the benefits biometrics have established that were once unforeseen which include establishing parity in societies that have traditionally lacked class equity.

Traditional identification technologies (passwords, PINs, plastic ID cards) are no longer reliable and quickly being supplanted with biometrics. For example, the increased focus on improving internet security to fight cybercrime has opened the door for the use of biometrics as a stand-alone solution, or as part of a multi-factor authentication strategy.
