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.

Honestly, if I would care strongly about the security of the data on my phone, I would probably not use a pattern to unlock it, traces of grease should be the easiest to find.
