Biometrics has become a point of contention when it comes to online security, but experts say many users could be missing out on one of the biggest benefits biometrics and other authentication methods bring: more accessibility.
With the rise of consumer privacy and better security, we’ve seen new authentication methods appearing across content and applications that we often use. One of the most common ways that smartphones and tablets have started to utilize is biometric access in the form of facial recognition and fingerprints.
On top of adding a layer of security because biometrics are harder to spoof, experts also say that biometrics can give users an easy way to access content without worrying about remembering passwords. This can be exceptionally useful for users with disabilities.
