Better ditch those cute peace signs on your selfies!
Tech savvy identity thieves are now able to zoom in on your fingers with HD lenses and replicate your fingerprints!
The Daily Mall UK reports,
Isao Echizen, a professor at Japan’s National Institute of Informatics, told Sankei Shimbun, that people should refrain from putting their hands anywhere near the frame.
The professor said the quality of cameras in smartphones and tablets have now reached a level where fingerprint data can be obtained from a selfie.
He told the Japanese news outlet: ‘If someone hacks your password, you can change it, but you’re pretty much stuck with the fingerprints you were born with.’
Professor Echizen carried out an experiment, which concluded data could be scanned from three metres away if the fingertips were exposed.
This is scary stuff! Guess you’ll have to let your love shine through your smile.
