You know how we’ve been told that no fingerprints are alike, which makes them the perfect security option for our Smarphones, well, that might soon be a thing of the past:
A group of researchers at New York University and Michigan State University recently developed fake fingerprints that are digital composites of common features found in many people’s fingerprints. They claim that they were able to achieve accurate matches 65% of the time. The fingerprints were developed to take advantage of the small size of most fingerprint sensors found on smartphones.
calm your titties remain calm, for now, though, as the researchers only tested their findings using computer simulations, rather than on a smartphone.
However, they also warned that the technology used to create artificial physical fingerprints was improving rapidly.
