The customers were promptly notified to change their fingerprints and retinas.

I did. I found the company CEO and took his fingers and his retinas. Because I know for sure they won't have been stored in a poorly secured database. If they had, it might have been properly secured. There be a lesson here... If they are in charge of securing other people's data, theirs needs to be in there too.

And this is why biometrics are NOT A PASSWORD. They are technically public anyway, can never be changed, and you cannot guarantee the data was taken at the time of the authentication challenge.

I was expecting it to be the service that hosts Apple or Huawei's biometrics but no. Its the UK police.

I wonder how many authors of mean tweets had their biometrics hacked?

These tools should only be used for local unlocking. For security and privacy.

hahahahhaha Its hard to believe that people trusted tech companies to keep their biometrics secure. This is as dumb as skinny white women walking around africa and the ME. Natural selection. Develop better threat perception. Zero sympathy.

This is one of the reasons I don’t think biometrics are ready for prime time.
