Post-Password

Consumers seek biometric security for app logins

Implications - Proving that biometric authentication systems have industry-spanning implications, login technology that does not require entering a password is being incorporated into apps. Initially integrated as a post-login payment method and for device activation, biometric security features eliminate the need for personal information and passwords. This alleviates consumer paranoia regarding digitally shared information, while further streamlining the process of joining the online world -- conflicting desires often seen in digital natives.
