Consider these scenarios-
“A thumbprint left at the scene of a murder in an office.
The police took Fingerprints from the doors and windows in a bank robbery.
A palm print recovered from the glass window from home in an apartment building.”
These unpleasant incidents are not part of some detective novels and movies; these are some real-life events that had happened earlier in almost every country, and can happen again anytime, anywhere, if you are not alert. The motive is not to scare you, but to keep you secure and alert from unknown threats.
This is the reason fingerprint identification has become a crucial part of our lives. We are using these in mobile phones, tablets, laptops and other devices etc. At the workplace, more and more organizations are using fingerprint scanners to keep an eye on employee’s attendance and cost-effective security solutions. This post will include How does Fingerprint scanner works and what are the top 5 brands in this sector-
How does a Fingerprint Scanner work?
Unlike password-based systems, which can be cracked, Biometric user authentication, especially fingerprint scanners, is a sophisticated security system that offers more excellent protection and control over information access. Fingerprints are a hallmark of each person. A fingerprint scanner is an electronic device that reads the picture of the finger, including its papillary patterns and then communicates the scan to a computer program. Then, this scanned image is compared with the sample image already stored in the computer program. If it matches, then a biometric password is created and allowed access.
