Biometric identification - advantages

There are a number of advantages to this technology:

  • Biometric identification can provide extremely accurate, secured access to information; fingerprints, retinal and iris scans produce absolutely unique data sets when done properly
  • Current methods like password verification have many problems (people write them down, they forget them, they make up easy-to-hack passwords)
  • Automated biometric identification can be done very rapidly and uniformly, with a minimum of training
  • Your identity can be verified without resort to documents that may be stolen, lost or altered.
