Great - It wont take long for the criminals to lift your finger prints from the wonderfully secure android device.
Very bad move, but not surprising. They can always blame everyone else if anything goes wrong.
This NSA thing has become more like arrow to the Knee joke,
fuk u Snowden...
Anonymous, 01 Mar 2014sure, everybody wants to scan there fingerprint into an un-verified app on open source platfou... moreA seemingly well intended idea but poorly thought through. There are already so many malicious apps out there and it's already difficult enough keeping your biometric information to yourself without cowboys getting in on the act. I hope Google reconsider this idea.
sure, everybody wants to scan there fingerprint into an un-verified app on open source platfourm. this is the worst idea ever to allow 3rd party apps to allow access to your fingerprint lol!
Anonymous, 01 Mar 2014Apple atleast keeps ur fingerprints safe and even recently explained how ..... this samsung ap... moreactually apple is just missinforming again. it cant keep a fingerprint safe..ill just use any object you touched and replicate your fingerprint and get access.
Apple atleast keeps ur fingerprints safe and even recently explained how ..... this samsung approach is totally unsafe and opens ur fingerprint data to be accessed by 3rd part apps and wtever malware or spyware shit available to the google play store .... good luck u android totting losers!!!
I hope,fingerprint scanner is security,protection at all and (working) and want scanner same your face (front camera)!!!.Do it this Samsung.
Surely the fingerprint scanner is awesome for security and for third-party apps.
But, the true destination of that, will depend on how manufacturers will improve on and on...
Specially Samsung and Apple, the giants will dipute face to face all the time.
I specialy like this.
Gaurav, 28 Feb 20141, Samsung couldn't impliment the scanner properly. Yes, it still is in the same place as Appl... moreIt takes 3-4 attempts to swipe your finger to unlock your phone? Really?
So you already have this not yet released phone then?
Please, tell me more things you know about this phone not yet available to the general public.
erm, guys. actually, japan phone Fujitsu already have fingerprint sensor long long time ago. not apple nor samsung. my 2cents
Now everyone can access your fingerprint data. Samsung you fail this time.
No way, 28 Feb 2014Apple didn't include all apps using this feature for a reason.
Secondly there is no person ... moreWake up bro...
Finger print scanner first introduced in motorola phone..not apple iphone...
It is not copying..it is a safty feature
Apple didn't include all apps using this feature for a reason.
Secondly there is no person who could look at the finger print scanner and not instantly be disappointed with Samsung copying again..
I mean finger print scanner was first on apple on a modern phone. Samsung even releasing a gold version is just disgraceful!! That's why they always so cheap. And that's REAL market demand.
Riyal, 28 Feb 2014I want DNA scanner please...Yes I agree bro.we need DNA scanner,this one is not trustworthy. HaHaHa....
godofnubz, 27 Feb 2014haha.. Apple with fingerprint capability is a fool and only fools would buy that phone.. imagi... moreYou know what use my fingerprints have other than unlocking phones? Leaving smudges over smooth surfaces. Crap with the NSA or what not stealing my fingerprint, unless they gonna pick their nose with it haha!
Seriously, that privacy thing that everyone is afraid; I'm beginning think I'm in a site with lots of people who likes anything illegal.
But letting 3rd party apps use my print? It's like saying hello hackers! Come on steal my personal info!
