Anyone who would like to secure their computer using a fingerprint scanner might be interested in this new creation by iTouch ID which the company says is the world’s smallest USB fingerprint scanner to date.
Simply insert the tiny fingerprint scanner into any spare USB port to add an extra layer of security to your desktop or laptop computer. Watch the video below to learn more about this tiny device created by iTouch ID.
The USB fingerprint scanner is equipped with AES-256 encrypted with a unique identifier per device for two level authentications and has been constructive from aircraft grade aluminium and finished with a hard anodised coating.
It’s compatible with both PC and Mac systems and is available to back over on the Kickstarter crowdfunding website with pledges starting from just $79. Its creators explain a little more:
“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 but never 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, lets you pass. No hacker in the world can get access to your fingerprint – because the image is not stored!
iTouch ID is capable of being the front line of defence for your laptop’s operating system, acting as a main password alternative. It also can manage multiple passwords to your accounts, and automatically log you into your favorite social networks, messaging clients and any other programs or websites. It even can lock and unlock files and folders on your computer, you just have to set a setting, and iTouch ID will follow. Basically, every situation where you would previously need a password, can now be resolved with iTouch ID.”
