No more mobile phone is mere a communicating device. With development in the mobility, it has become a computing device, a credit card, and a data store house. People are using it for surfing web, carrying out monetary transactions and lots of sensitive data are being stored in the phone, so it is very important to protect the data from unwanted access. Though many data protection applications are available, the consumers are expecting apposite mobile security. Wouldn’t it be good if the mobile devices have biometric security? If, you are also thinking the same way, there is a valid reason of bringing smile on-to your face. Developers are working to incorporate the biometric technology in mobile devices.
The tech-developers are burning the midnight oil to implement biometric systems in mobile phone. Some of the expected biometric techniques to be incorporated in mobile phones are:
· Fingerprint recognition
· Face recognition
· Iris pattern recognition
· Voice recognition
Implementation of these techniques along with the existing security arrangement will help users protect the device from unwanted access. Imagine the strength of security when mobile banking transactions will be authorized through biometric recognition as well as using passwords and SMS codes. Such security arrangement will be very relaxing for people who are highly dependent upon cell phones for a variety of purposes including financial management.
It is buzzed that Motorola Atrix will be the first phone to come with finger print technology. A 1cm-wide scanner is fitted to the Motorola Atrix, which will scan the finger of the user. It will require the owner's fingerprint to be scanned before it will allow anyone to access the web, play games or even make a call. Similarly, a phone with face recognition system will require the user to come in front of device’s camera to get unlocked and being used.
Developers are working on the implementation of aforesaid biometric techniques in mobile phones. With successful implementation, high-end security for mobile phones will be achieved.
