Biometric technology has also seen changes with the introduction of smartphones. In 2013, Apple introduced Touch ID to its iPhone 5S that made biometric technology more accessible for everyday use. Touch ID allows users to access their iOS devices using fingerprint authentication.
Millions of Apple and Samsung customers were open to the possibility of biometric fingerprint scanners integrated into their smartphones. Apple added facial recognition to the iPhone X shortly after the wide acceptance of fingerprint authentication.
5G is predicted to make big data and the Internet of Things (IoT) more accessible than ever today. It is why standard bodies, groups, and organizations like FIDO2 and W3C regulates the use of biometrics. Biology-based security is now a beneficial tool that helps ensure data safety and security.
