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.

It used to be "The cops are here! Quick, flush the drugs!" Now it's "The cops are here! Quick, press the power button five times!" ;)
