Something you are (Biometrics, signature)

Any one of the 3 can be circumvented but the accumulation of 2 or all 3 are harder to break.

For Apple to make this truely secure, they should implement their finger print scanner giving the option to only then enter a 7 character password. I say 7 character with the reference that after 7 failed login attempts wipes the phone of all personal data and activates a GPS location beacon to the local authorities. However there would probably be alot of false positives because lets face it. 90% of the worlds population are god dam idiots.

True that anyway in my opinion this news is irrelevant I knew since they announced it this could be break tro, but you average lifter won't have time to get your print, this is not an impenetrable method of security its main goal is just to deter the majority into accessing your phone, finger print security ID is flawed yes, but your average joe doesn't know how to circumvent it, plus even if he does its still a hassle. I agree with you Apple should also give Pass has an optional 2 step authentication for those who really won't too keep people out.

fingerprint locks are older than 6 years... probably 20 years old. The resolution of the camera is higher now so it's harder....


There are other technique that are even more secure like scanning your vein patterns

The locks are older, yes. The Mythbusters episode is from 2006, and shows the photocopying of the print, enlarging, use of a permanent marker to enforce ridges, shrinking, creation of the artificial finger, types of materials used, and even questions regarding thermal variances.
