Pretty much everyone has at least one online account – from the basic email to social networks, forums, cloud storage, bank accounts and many others. Experts recommend that in order to secure them, you create a unique password – that’s at least a 12-character combination with letters, numbers and symbols. Now try that with all your accounts! It’s a total headache to remember one or two, let alone a dozen or more. Even if you lock them all under one password, it would be a weak level of security at best. But there’s another way.
Every person is the world has a different fingerprint. So you already own a unique key, and we provide a fitting lock. To break it down: When you use iTouch ID for the first time it captures an image of your fingerprint and stores only the analysis data of the print, not the actual image. When you use it again, to access your accounts, it compares parameters of your fingerprint with the template and if they match, your in. No hacker in the world can get access to your fingerprint – because the image is not stored!
