Finger Security: Lock Down Samsung Applications using your Fingerprint

Share on Reddit0Tweet about this on TwitterShare on Facebook0Share on Google+2

More and more Android devices come with a fingerprint scanner and I know what they become so popular. They are extremely easy to use and you don’t have to memorize a long Android password/PIN. Just imagine unlocking the device each time with a pattern or it with a 7-digit password or numerical sequence and picture yourself by using the fingerprint. Which of these methods is more tempting?

However, don’t you imagine that fingerprint sensors are the absolute form of security; it has been proven that just as how a pattern unlock sequence can be stolen by looking at the oil residue on the phone, so a fingerprint can actually be lifted from the device; even more, if you have a bit of water or dirt on your finger, there are big chances for the scan to result in an error.

And I know that many of you are also thinking of an application that lets you lock down applications using your fingerprint. Finger Security does much more than that, so it might be the solution to your searches. Unfortunately, I want to tell you from the start the downside of this application: Finger Security is only compatible with those Samsung devices which have a fingerprint sensor. However, if you have such a device, then don’t hesitate to give it a try.

The app allows any owner of a Samsung device with a fingerprint sensor to protect his/her apps better than ever, I like its Material design which makes it look so great, while the included features will definitely capture your interest:
