Fingerprints

Quote

Like a number of people, fingerprints don't work for me; I have to use the insecure pattern option on my smartphone.  In addition, there are people in the building indutry who handle bricks etc & whose fingerprints get worn off, never mind the small number of people who are born without fingerprints.

Like all biometrics, fingerprints can't (easily) be changed.  That's the point of them.
However, if a database of biometric data is compromised the biometrics, unlike PINs and passwords, cannot be set by the consumer - or changed - or varied by application.

I haven't read anything about these issues.  Maybe I've mised something(?)
