If you value the security of your dataâ€Š-â€Šyour email, social media accounts, family photos, the history of every place you’ve ever been with your phoneâ€Š-â€Šthen 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.
The police can force me to use my fingerprint to unlock my phone, but they’re not going to find anything incriminating on there. I guess they could plant something, but if they want to bust you that badly, you’re screwed either way.
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.
