While fingerprint scanners on personal laptops didn't exactly catch on as a must-have selling feature, technology like the Nexus Imprint is being revived in many new smartphones as biometric identification is becoming more linked to the protection of one's digital identity.
As well as being re-introduced into familiar technology, fingerprint scanners are becoming smarter, faster and more accurate. Seen on the 5X and 6P models, Nexus Imprint technology lets users place a finger on the back of their phone case and have it scanned to unlock apps or quickly pay at a checkout line.
Now that Google has taken steps to push fingerprint authentication on its devices, consumers are beginning to realize that biometrics are set to become a key part of personal identity verification and security in the not-do-distant future.
