People like using passwords way more than biometrics

  1. Can’t change your fingerprints if they’ve been compromised*. That’s where passwords still have the edge.
    (* reminds me of an old joke about an experimental ‘morning after pill’ for men – they take it the next day and it changes their blood type.)

  2. Biometrics in principle sound great but in practice have a few issues. It is much harder to revoke biometrics – I can change my password, if compromised but not my finger. They are also “fuzzy” – my password is either right or wrong. However, my fingerprint scan is somewhat variable – on my Samsung Note 4 the fingerprint always fails for a few minutes after I have washed my hands, or got my finger wet. The airport scanners work for my face about 1 time in 10 – not helped by the fact they instruct me to take of my glasses when the comparison picture is with glasses on.
