Give Apple some credit. Touch ID and Face ID work well and are much beloved as the solution to higher security and higher convenience. It isn’t that way everywhere else.
Samsung is once again in hot water for a shoddy biometrics implementation. This time the culprit is the Galaxy S10 and its ultrasonic in-screen fingerprint reader, which apparently can be unlocked by anyone as long as there is a screen protector or some other piece of transparent plastic between a finger and the sensor.
Uh oh. What about Google’s new Pixel 4 smartphones? Erik Slaven on Pixel’s facial recognition:
I would’ve preferred an optional in-display fingerprint scanner (thank you Samsung), but if it works well, I’ll adapt. Is it at least as secure as Apple’s Face ID?
It’ll still work if you’re dead.
Should I become a zombie, roaming aimlessly in search of whatever zombies are in search of (brains?), at least my Pixel 4 can still be unlocked, hands-free.
Eyes closed, too.
