Biometric authentication – are the Brits too trusting of biometric security?
A report from Visa says that UK residents are nearly twice as likely to trust banks to keep biometric data such as fingerprints and iris scans safe.
It also revealed that nearly two thirds of us say the British are willing to use biometrics as a method of authentication.
So does biometric authentication for banking offer a safer alternative to pin numbers and passwords? If you’ve seen one of the many demonstrations over the last year of spoof fingerprints made from Plasticine you might not be quite so quick to adopt it as a primary authentication method.
