While there could be a lot of debates over which solution helps for higher security than the others, we do not need any debate to conclude that we should kick out what destroys the security.

Certainly, we are talking about biometrics-involved authentication deployed in cyberspace (biometrics deployed in physical space for identification is a different story).

It takes no more than 2 minutes for anyone to get convinced that biometrics used with a default password/pincode would inevitably destroy the security that the password/pincode has somehow provided. Watch this short video — “Biometrics in Cyber Space — “below-one” factor authentication”

Salespeople who tout biometrics solutions do not even require the skills of their colleagues who tout ‘snake oil’ where the falsehood of biometrics is persistently endorsed by reputed security experts and global tech firms. The banquet will, however, be over sooner or later because it is in a sand castle that it is going on.

Well, when the global population get to throw away the lie-ridden biometrics-involved authentication, we will see a huge vacuum generated all over the world. Our solutions are here ready to fill the global vacuum with the power of citizens’ non-volatile episodic image memory, say, image memory of citizens’ unforgettable personal experiences.
