Taken up today is this TechRepublic report on voiceprint as a new password — https://www.techrepublic.com/article/your-voiceprint-could-be-your-new-password-as-companies-look-to-increase-security-for-remote-workers/

Instead of “Your voiceprint could be your new password as companies look to increase security for remote workers”, I would have mentioned as follows.
