Not only fingerprints, but also the eyes and the face to unlock the smartphone
In the future we will see more and more not only authentication systems such as the touch ID but also others that take account of the eyes, of the face in 3D and other parts of the body. He speaks of the backchannel site highlighting data from a study by Juniper Research, according to which by 2019 will be 770 million users who download and use apps with biometric recognition capabilities.
Manufacturers of mobile devices are ready to propose specific solutions for a relatively old technology but updated to take advantage of the trend that has made natural taking the selfie. The only photos anyway not enough manufacturers are developing algorithms to determine the authenticity of who is in front of the camera, see if the user does several things from his daily routine, even if you move your fingers in a different way.
Jack Ma of Alibaba, the company consists of a family of companies active in the field of electronic commerce, at CeBit in Hannover showed a technology, "Smile to Pay", able to recognize you by a smile and validate your purchase . The technology takes into account the unique biological measurements in the facial structure and can be exploited for all payment platforms operated by Alibaba. It is a tool that can transform your body in an authentication method for payments and other companies have already studied systems that provide for payments to scan other parts of the body.

MasterCard, in partnership with the Bank of Montreal, presented a system of facial recognition of the subject. Taking advantage of the Wi-Fi and location-based GPS, the app loaded on a "communicates" smartphone that the user is actually present in the store and be enabled app Hands Free. Arriving at the checkout, you do not even need to take your phone out of your pocket, the shopkeeper just compare the image through which a camera / scanner will track the customer's face that is opposite with the image that the cash system automatically it proposes to authorize the digital payment.
Even Amazon has recently patented a facial recognition system for payments, eliminating the use of password or PIN. Various manufacturers working for some time to technologies that prevent identity theft and the latest buzz in the industry are the mechanisms that take into account the "depth" of the targeted subject, recreating a real-time 3D model that is faster compared to the user profile database .
In addition to the systems that recognize the iris, were born systems that take into account the location of the upper line and lower eyelids, dilated pupils, the size and orientation of the iris, the eye contours, biometrics which could achieve the 'alignment of the two irises (user before the system image in the archive) to compare. advanced systems are able to "understand" if the user uses a different hand from the usual (identifying if you are typing in your right hand when, in fact, normally used on the left).
Research by VISA last year shows that consumers in Europe are favorable to the use of biometrics in particular in payment systems when integrated with other security measures. About three-quarters of the European population (73%; 76% the Italian media) believes the two-factor authentication, that is, in cases where a biometric parameter is used in combination with a physical payment device, a secure way to authenticate the holder at the time of payment.
At the moment the biggest challenge for biometrics ranks in those scenarios where the only form of authentication used. If used as the sole system of recognition biometric data can be like a "false positive" or "false negative" because, unlike the PIN code number that can be typed in a correct or wrong, there is a binary verification 'right / wrong', biometric authentication, in fact, is based on the probability of correspondence between the entered parameters.
Biometric recognition systems therefore work best when combined with other factors such as the physical device, the technologies of geo-localization and additional authentication methods. If you take into account the advantages biometric authentication - the process that confirms the identity of a person with the measurement of specific intrinsic characteristics of an individual, such as fingerprints or iris recognition - half of European consumers (51 %; 57% average recorded in Italy) is convinced that the biometric authentication in payments will start a checkout experience faster and easier than traditional payment methods.
This gadget allows you to see exactly where the man and the phone moves. "Lithuania is another service that can be found in the Locator.lt. It is suitable for any user, regardless of what the telephone. It is designed to keep track of children and second sides, but check this service need to have a phone and to search for the future. After recording the phone, it comes a message on her answer, you can see where the phone is. If something happened at that time, you can see where the phone ", - said M. Pareščius. The interviewer says that this decision is a serious and he is helped. "I had this decision to use dipped search the thought that something bad has happened. - I have about this decision to tell anyone who has children and elderly parents. "The decision to serve and when you can not remember where you left the meeting phone, but the main purpose of the use - to find a man on suspicion that something bad has happened. "Children have a different solution - Watches" Search Gadgetville, from which they can call mom and dad, as previously meškafonas. Parents have the opportunity to call to the device in two modes: silent, to hear what is happening in the child's environment, if a child kidnapped, or it uncertain situation and nepridaryti him in trouble, and normal when you can talk with your child.
This is possible with a clock.. The decision is more. "For example, there are solutions that are used in rural areas or in places where it is difficult to access. For example, a hunter dog, looking for game-beast, and he can get lost, tired, hurt, climb into a loop hole in the cave of the beast, and they are used to search for things. In some cases, it is a sensor cover, attached to the collar, in other cases - are special accessories that do not have a GSM accessories but have radio communications. According to him, similar solutions are used to track items, t. ie., suitcases, automobiles. "Suitcase can be regarded as a device that will show you where it is, if you skipped the trip. For cars there are different solutions: one is tracked via GPS and GSM, GPS and other tracked by radio, the other - GPS and radio communications, if one is blocked, the other fails to cheat. There are other solutions, the use of satellite systems.
The interviewer says that protecting your loved ones, it makes sense to take all necessary measures: to give families information about the location of the phone, install additional data transmission systems in cars. "Do not be afraid to give information about their location in the second half, if you have parents, and ask for the data and them. Vehicles to install so-called tracker, security system, which supports GPS.
Yes, it will cost a few extra euros for a SIM card which will be in the car, but there are other advantages. To me, both personal and company cars all this is because there are no other solutions, if you want to feel safer. Chatter agree that security increases and the SOS message sending, you can make Android owners. "But the main problem is that if you sit in the car trunk, or you will be bound, messages may not even be able to send, so it makes sense to have a gadget that sends data continuously without your extra effort. Yes, they eat the battery, but other solutions are not. According to him, on such gadgets telephones discharged by 10-15 percent. faster.
