Biometric authentication is a security measure that uses a person's unique physiological or behavioral characteristics to verify their identity.
Biometric authentication is a security measure that uses a person's unique physiological or behavioral characteristics to verify their identity. This type of authentication is becoming increasingly popular in various industries because it provides a high level of security and convenience.
Biometric authentication can use a variety of physical traits, such as fingerprints, facial recognition, iris scans, or voice recognition, to confirm an individual's identity. By leveraging unique features of a person's body or behavior, biometric authentication can greatly reduce the risk of unauthorized access, identity theft, and other forms of cybercrime.
“Biometric authentication provides a secure and convenient access. No more passwords to remember or steal. Just my face or fingerprint, easy and seamless.”
