If you value the security of your data - your email, social media accounts, family photos, the history of every place you've ever been with your phone - then I recommend against using biometric identification.

Instead, use a passcode to unlock your phone.

Can't argue with that - especially in place where law enforcement often takes a... Liberal approach to detainees.

I'm not one of those people who say, 'If you have nothing to fear, you have nothing to hide', but I do think a lot of people are too goddamn paranoid. Of course, some people have good reason to be, but I suspect most people don't.

It's not about paranoia or guilt, IMHO. Instead it is about principals and whether you value our rights as individuals that our forefathers granted us in the constitution.
