Cell Security: Thumbprint Reader

There is an Android app that uses iris-scanning for phone security. Very impressive, but what I really want is a thumbprint reader, since it would obviously be about 100x less intrusive.


  1. I want a thumbprint reader for everything, online passwords, credit card readers etc...

  2. I remember the first time I saw a commercial one, my employer was testing it back in 1999. At that time, I was sure they would become common. I have hardly seen one since.
