a large technology company that services the public, and I am really glad that something like this fingerprint verification exists now. Do you know how much of my day is spent trying to explain that there is a possible difference between and email password,and another type of account password? This will save alot of people alot of time and grief in the long run. Not to mention that no picture of a fingerprint is stored, just a string of data that is hashed and stored in the processor that apparently cannot be reassembled or replicated. I applaud apple for what they are trying to do with account security and usability. Of course all the time maintaining a healthy level of skepticism and researching each feature thoroughly before jumping to conclusions.
