That would definitely good news to hackers, LOL!
It is easier to hack old tech btw. :D
New Is Always Better
Not only Apple has delivered an elegant method of execution and implementation, their approach to secure it is much better than Samesung, sorry Samsung.
So you think your finger print is safe on iphone or android from nsa lololololololol lmao really no one is safe
haha.. Apple with fingerprint capability is a fool and only fools would buy that phone.. imagine somebody stealing your fingerprint?? *turns around* ooohhhh look at that upcoming Samsung phone... it is the best phone ever because it allows third party apps to access my fingerprint i would like to buy one of those so I dont have to memorize all my passwords..

Apple have already said that they oppose any NSA interference, and that the fingerprint ID remains on the phone.
TheNeighbor, 27 Feb 2014That does sound logical. Changeable password than fingerprints. I also worry that thieves w... moreIf they held you at gun point, wouldn't you give up the pass code as well? Lol
Maskakos, 27 Feb 2014I will assume that samsung will only allow the fingerprint to be used by the third party apps ... moreThat does sound logical. Changeable password than fingerprints.
I also worry that thieves would knock you off, get your fingerprint scanned to open your phone. Hmmm. Nasty. Or having you open your phone first and reset your fingerprint at gunpoint.
If there was some sort of combination, like fingerprint and password, I think that would be better. And the kill switch so that your device becomes entirely useless, please.
That means all of that apps will have access to your finger print data,alongside your personal data,... .That's not good.
Fingerprints = NO protection at all.
Passwords are ACCURATE = suitable for encryption. Fingerprints are inaccurate (slightly different each time) and are not suitable for encryption.
The ONLY protection is ENCRYPTION, all other can be cracked by kids in 5 mins.
Fingerprints are STORED AT YOUR PHONE. Thats STUPID and is equal SAFE BOX with PASSWORD containing PAPER glued on it.
But fingerprint databases are paradise for "MUSCULAR" and other projects of lazy NSA/GCHQ guys.
It's ridiculous. Apart from the fact that one's fingerprint can be used in order to frame anyone, the simple phone thief will now have to cut the owner's finger.
They should use a DNA scanner instead, then a mad scientist can clone you hacking the Angry Birds your just dld lol
I'm going to use my toe to log in. No way they are getting hold of my fingers!

There are always ways! ;) It's only a matter of time and will. I will postpone using such cr*ps as long as possible.
I mean when they say that they will be allowing third party apps to use fingerprint scanner they mean that those apps can take only confirmation from fingerprint scanner and nothing else . They won't be sharing any information with anyone.
why so much fuss??
apple denies sharing fingerprint data with third part apps....but your data is still being sent to the NSA.
whether its samsung or apple....just on't use fingerprints to unlock your phone....
On android there are million ways to unlock your phone which are way quicker than some fingerprint crap
