But fingerprint security isn’t foolproof.

Here’s what to know as you consider whether to place your trust in it:

The coque samsung galaxy core prime ve sm-g361f S5 has a coque samsung galaxy j1 film sensor on the home button, coque huawei voiture just like Apple’s iPhone 5s. On the S5, you coque samsung galxy note 2 train the phone to recognize your finger by swiping on it seven times. You also enter a passcode as a backup, so you’re not locked out if the device doesn’t recognize your print. On the iPhone, that can happen if your hand is greasy or wet, for instance.

The phone then converts the fingerprint information into a mathematical representation, known as a hash, and stores that in a secured location on the device. Samsung says that information stays on the device and is coque samsung galaxy j5 real madrid never shared.

When you want to unlock your phone, you simply coque samsung galaxy alpha minion swipe on the home button. A hash is again created and must match the one the phone already has. Otherwise, the phone stays locked.

You can do coque huawei p20 lite proximus this with up to three fingers on the S5, compared with five on the iPhone. On the S5, you must swipe down. On the iPhone, you simply hold your finger on the home button, and you can do that sideways or upside down as well.

The HTC One Max also has a fingerprint sensor, though tests by The Associated Press ma coque huawei p10 lite have shown it to be coque samsung s10 orange inconsistent in recognizing prints.

What can you do with the fingerprint

All three devices let you skip the passcode and unlock the phone.

You can also train the HTC phone to open a particular app automatically depending on the finger used. Apple lets you use the finger to authenticate purchases through its iTunes store, but it’s keeping the system off limits to outside parties. Samsung lets you make PayPal payments.

If you’re at a retail store that enlever la coque samsung galaxy s6 edge accepts mobile payments coque huawei p20 lite vandenborre through PayPal’s app, for instance, you can use the fingerprint instead of your usual password. That’s also the case with online transactions using PayPal on the phone. The hash doesn’t get sent to PayPal. Rather, the phone verifies for PayPal that the fingerprint has been verified.

Anuj Nayar, senior director for global initiatives with eBay Inc.’s PayPal business, says there’s usually a trade off between security and convenience. Beef up security, and it’s tough to use. Make it convenient, and open up windows for breaches. With fingerprint IDs, he says, you can have both.

Are you really getting securityIt’s more coque samsung s3 psg secure than not locking your phone with a passcode at coque samsung s6 homme all. It’s also more secure than using a four digit passcode, as there’s a greater chance of guessing coque samsung s6 360 that than the particular hash used. But there’s never a guarantee.

Shortly after Apple acheter coque samsung s8 started selling the coque samsung j3 2016 bordeaux iPhone 5s, coque samsung j3 2017 silicone rouge a German hacking group said it managed to bypass the coque samsung a6 moto fingerprint system by using a household printer and coque samsung galaxy s6 edge vodka some wood glue to create an artificial coque samsung grand prime eau copy of a genuine fingerprint.

The group said the fingerprint ID system was easy to trick, though it’s not something easily pulled off in the real world. You need to have that specific phone and the fingerprint, for one thing. And then you compromise only that coque samsung trend lite moto one phone.

Security experts point out that once a finger’s compromised, you can’t replace it the way you can a passcode. That doesn’t mean someone can use an S5 breach to personnalise ta coque huawei p8 unlock an iPhone, though, as the hash formulas used are typically proprietary and kept coque huawei y5 antichoc secret.

But it’s not a threat to take lightly, either.

“Biometrics work very well for identifying something, but whether you can use it for authentication or not depends on the implementation,” says Jeremy Bennett, chief mobile architect for Intel Corp.’s security business, McAfee.

He prefers dual security using the fingerprint with something else, such as a passcode.

Should you use it

PayPal officials point out that behind the scenes, it’s still performing the usual anti fraud checks. If the account is used to buy a television in California just five minutes after you buy coffee in New York, it’ll suspect something is up.

If the phone is lost or stolen, or your fingerprint is somehow compromised, you can contact PayPal to de register that device from future use…
