Apple iPhone 5s Biometric Fingerprint Touch Pad Puts Biometrics in The Spotlight

The biggest roadblock to biometrics is the safety and security of information, and that is where Apple's iPhone 5s went wrong. Why, in this day and age, would Apple store a fingerprint locally, on the phone? People misplace their phone or have it stolen every day, posing huge liability to the actual owner. Before biometrics, losing a password was a threat, but now Apple has made it possible to steal someone's fingerprint.

What Apple Should Do To Improve The new Apple iPhone 5s
Apple needs to take a look at what MinuteHound has been doing for many years, which is encrypting a finger and/or thumb print and using cloud based software for storage. For example, one part of MinuteHound's secure, patented technology is that every time a user scans his or her print, that fingerprint is immediately broken down and transferred to multiple cloud locations using 128-bit encryption. The print is never stored, but instead converted into a binary number. This means if someone stole the scanner or computer no sensitive data would be lost. Even if a hacker accessed one of the servers, all they would find is a bunch of numbers not identifiable to them. MinuteHound's biometric software poses no information risk at all. It is completely safe to use.

Apple has been using cloud technology for a long time, and it is very interesting why they could not find a way to incorporate secure biometric technology, such as MinuteHound's, with their latest release. Maybe they are waiting for their next iPhone...In the meantime MinuteHound will continue perfecting biometric identification technology while keeping vital information private and secure. MinuteHound's users sleep well without the worry of hackers obtaining a copy of their fingerprintWhen will iPhone users enjoy the same?
