Increase security with new ways of authentication

The standard named Web Authentication used to let users sign into the browsers safely without having to use complicate passwords but a fingerprint scanner, a camera or a security key.

  1. Device with fingerprint sensors

Currently, on the market, there are a wide variety of phones produced with a focus on integrating a fingerprint sensor. However, the big name Vivo has defeated all the competitors with its newly released X20 Plus UD. This innovative phone is integrated with a safe and convenient fingerprint sensor built into the screen.

It may be though that a fingerprint sensor built in the screen would not be a really helpful idea. Nevertheless, in fact, it is definitely a leap for both software developers and users. Instead of placing a button strangely on the back of the phone, having a fingerprint sensor built into the screen would be more modern as the whole phone screen is functional. Thanks to this update, phones will be more unique and interesting to use.

  1. Student payments with biometric technology integration

Students studying at a school located in Copenhagen are now able to try out a totally new experience with a finger scanner. They will no longer have to bring cash, tons of cards or smart phone when going for lunch at school. This finger scanner will be used to make payments in a more secure and faster manner.

With regards to activation, this finger scanner will be launched to use at the cafeteria for all people with the national debit card to register and connect their fingerprint to their own accounts. This new system is different from others as it is able to authenticate each user depending on the ability to detect circulating blood, which is considered to be more modern than other methods.

  1. More security standards for browsers

Such browsers as Firefox, Google and Microsoft are utilizing the FIDO Alliance and W3C Web Authentication for users. This new kind of standard comes with two major password usage. The first is mainly focused on the convenience because taking advantage of biometric security is now much easier to deploy. Another one is for the security because they want to make use of more unique methods with a higher level of difficulty. By this way, web providers can reduce the number of unauthenticated users as well as hackers or any others that may bring about negative impacts.
