A lot of smart phones have this now, don't they? I had it set up on my phone briefly but it didn't work for dick. The one time it did shocked me. I had dropped my phone off the side of the bed and looked over to pick it up. Phone unlocks. Apparently it fell on the button, rolled into position, and caught my face quickly popping over the edge of the bed, despite not recognizing it straight on and stationary all day before.

"Got a match?"

"Yeah, your face and my password."

NIXON YOU DOLT!!!!!: Know how I know you didn't read the article?


Guilty. This is Fark, after all. Although after a quick skim it looks interesting. Facebook did a similar thing to me recently when I logged on. It made me match names from my friends list to pictures of one of my friends. I'm not sure how secure that really is.

It's done that to me too, if I log in, say, from a relatives computer out of state on vacation or something.  It's not SUPER secure, but what's the chance random bad guy in Nigeria trying to access my shiat is going to recognize my highschool sweetheart 20 years later?

Not extremely, though that would also mean that someone has accessed your actual password - since I think this is done when on a new device w/o a mobile verification or the like.

I don't like the idea of the articles "pick a face", but rather if it were a combination of faces, sure.  Especially with all the site-to-site linking (like logging into a blog/newsmedia site w/your FB account to comment), I'd rather see something like you pick a combination of friend's faces; it seems like it would be more secure if I had to click a 2nd cousin in New York, a high school friend who moved to Seattle, and that random chick I banged nightly over the course of a week and a half two years ago.
The fault in that security would be if it randomized the incorrect faces, allowing someone to just refresh and pay attention to what faces are consistent.

Ahh memories, I remember the first ticket I ever opened where the user had a problem with her "pencil eraser".    "Why is this in my queue?  Can't she find another pencil?  Why call IT?"   Took me 10 minutes to remember she had a ThinkPad.

/So glad I moved out of ops.

The critical failing of biometrics is that if someone somehow steals the data or spoofs it, you cannot be issued new biometric data.

Yes, or if some mistake/minor data corruption occurs in your biometric data good luck on proving you are who you say you are.
