Privacy and Security
The mobile phone today is not just being used for communications, social
relationships and entertainment but also to perform digital and online
transactions leading to enormous growth of confidential data stored in and
processed by the phone. Personal data security has become an issue of concern.
For years, the password was the only secured way of authentication but now
passwords are much easier to hack and harder to remember. Smartphone companies
are therefore replacing these traditional passwords with biometrics like
fingerprint scanners, facial recognition, iris scanner, voice recognition, etc.
