Biometric security is strong and unique. But what happens if somebody steals your faceprint or fingerprint? You are compromised everywhere for the rest of your life.

The whole promise of biometric security stands and falls on how easy it is to replicate and abuse biometric modals. And the short answer is – it’s a cat and mouse game. On the long enough timeline, someone will be able to recreate a copy of your face or fingerprints that works just fine enough to fool authenticating systems. Once your biometric data is compromised, it affects all applications at once and you will be affected for the rest of your life.
