Hollywood has duped the minds of audiences, making biometrics easy to hack. In 1997, Gattaca showed Ethan Hawke bypassing a blood drop DNA scan; and in 1992, Sneakers showed Robert Redford hacking voice recognition with a tap of the word. 80% use biometrics today to unlock their mobile devices and 48% use biometrics to authenticate their transaction. Saying this, how good is biometric protection, and are they easy to hack?

Question responses differ from one to the next. First: Biometry is better than traditional PINs and Passwords. In addition, biometrics are difficult to hack, largely because of how long it will take to do so.

In short, the science behind biometric technology is not standardised. Each computer performs differently, is equipped with different protection and needs a specific approach to use which needs a unique approach to hacking.

While creating a fake to fool a biometric system is a simple, often effective, approach to hacking, creating a fake would require large amounts of user data. However, attempting to hack by using a fake will be hard without the biometric firewalls detecting it.

A biometric login option is available today at 57 percent of devices, and 42 percent do not use biometric authentication-free banking devices. For more information on biometric protection please read below.
