There’s been lots of buzz about the use of biometric technology as password replacement for smartphones and mobile devices. Now, it looks like biometrics are evolving into providing physical security for larger items that you might want to protect.
The iFingerLock is one of the newer gadgets available that uses your fingerprint to open and unlock its padlock hardware. Just like no two snowflakes are alike the same thing goes with your fingerprints. They’re 100 percent completely your own and they can’t be duplicated. This means your iFingerLock can deliver an exceptional and unique level of security in contrast to traditional padlocks that can be picked or jimmied to open.
The iFingerLock can be shared with up to nine other individual fingerprints and it requires two AAA batteries to operate. Manufacturers share that it’s meant for indoor use only, which means it might not be practical or effective for locking down your bike, scooter or outdoor equipment, especially in inclement weather (no snow, rain or other significant temperature changes).
You can purchase the iFingerLock on Amazon for $93.49 (on sale at the time this post was written). So, what do you think? Will you buy or have you purchased? How’s it working for you? Tell us in the comments below.
