biometric-technologyThere have been a lot of advancements in the field of biometrics over the past few years. Biometric
technology is observed by many as the most effective and safe method of individual identific
ation. Biometric technology is described as the automatic techniques of recognizing or confirming the identity of a living person in particular centered on a physiological or behavioral trait. Therefore, biometric technology can be either a recognition or an authentication method.

Biometric technology is not new and its utilization has turned out to be progressively prevalent than most people imagined. It could be interpreted that biometrics offers a high level of detection and security operations that have a lot of advantages over conventional methods. The advantages that biometrics provides are that the information is distinctive for every person and it can utilized as a technique for individual identification. The top benefits of Biometric technology are authentication, privacy or data discretion, authorization or access control, data veracity, and non-repudiation.

It can be used for criminal identification and prison security, and has the potential to be employed in a huge array of civilian relevance projects. Biometrics can be exercised to check illegal access to ATMs, cellular phones, smart cards, desktop PCs, workstations, and computer networks. Biometric technology can also play a huge role to make your business safe from scammers and cyberattacks. In addition, biometric technology is very useful during banking transactions carried out by telephone and Internet or electronic banking. In automobiles, biometric technology can replace keys with keyless entry devices.

Biometric technology is capable of ensuring fast and reliable protected access to information.     Currently, techniques such as password verification have a lot of issues causing people to write them down and forget them at times which leads to stealing and hacking.

One of the key points of biometric technology is its ability to eliminate the need to use passwords at all. Through the use of biometric technology, your identity can be confirmed without access to documents that may be stolen, mislaid, or amended. Biometric technology is experiencing rising acceptance around the globe due to its usability, investment benefits, and future potential.

A Variety of Fingerprint Scanners and Fingerprint Sensor Technologies for Varying Industry Conditions

Here are the top ten advantages of biometric technology:

  1. Biometric technology is very useful for ID verification in a range of government organizations, banks and financial institutions, and high security areas. Biometric systems are capable of recognizing people swiftly, consistently, and reliably.
  2. One of the main advantages associated with biometric technology is high individual identification accuracy. Biometrics relies on the use unique physical traits, such as a fingerprint, an iris pattern, or facial characteristics rendering biometric technology a very accurate technique of authenticating end users. Superior accuracy is why a lot of companies use biometrics for their security purposes.
  3. Since biometric characteristics cannot be conjectured or stolen, biometric systems present a superior level of security than usual means of authentication.
  4. Biometric technology is less exposed to damage and sudden changes. The behavioral and physical elements accessed for biometric verification like iris/retina, voice, pulse, DNA, vein, etc. are less in danger to damage and sudden changes.biometric-modality
  5. Another vital advantage of biometric technology is that it is less time consuming, dependable, user friendly, hard to falsify, requires negligible training, is inexpensive and accesses distinctive recognition features of individuals resulting in accurate verification.
  6. Biometric technology can be used in a lot of industries such as healthcare, civil ID, business, schools, financial industries etc. A lot of countries have already used biometric technology for voter registration, national ID, and national healthcare or e-passport projects.
  7. Biometric technology can be effectively employed in forensics. It is a useful technology that can be utilized for criminal identification and prison security.
  8. With the flourishing of Internet based businesses and the increased requirement for accurate verification when accessing accounts, biometric technology turns out to be the best and most suitable solution for secure mobile transaction identification.
  9. Biometric technology can be used to avert illicit access to ATMs, cellular phones, smart cards, desktop PCs, workstations, and computer networks.biometric-atm
  10. Passwords and PINS are easy to forget causing people to write them down and consequently can be stolen, and can at times be hacked. With biometrics technology, fingerprints won’t be lost and can’t be attained and copied by someone aiming to illegally gain access.

      I feel like biometric entry and exit signing on to the internet or signing into certain websites is best policy and for our own common good including pass ports and correctional facilities and institutions including banking industry and financial district and one more security step should be added before somebody can change ownership of real estate or trade ticket securites this will prevent securites fraud and real estate fraud and credit card fraud and inflation will go down and things will be more affordable for all of us

    For me the greatest advantage of using biometrics is the usability. It is so easy to use and there is no need for remembering strong passwords. My prediction is one day passwords gonna be obsolete and biometrics will be the new password.
