Biometrics and ID Thieves

A piece of your id.It’s no longer a great idea to become a stock-photo hand model. Just when you thought that the world couldn’t possibly get any scarier or tenser, again the skies have opened up with one more practice you should fear---in this case, for today, it’s flashing a peace sign in photographs.

Yes, from every basic bitch to Hello Kitty aficionados to politicking parasites, the reverse two-fingered salute has been ruled by Japan’s National Institute of Informatics (NII) as the latest way for identity thieves to capitalize on whatever is left in your 401K.The hallmark of a lady…that won’t get her identity stolen.

According to the NII researchers, whom were able to replicate fingerprints from photographs taken 9ft away, “Just by casually making a peace sign in front of a camera, fingerprints can become widely available.”

Be warned that other gestures such as waving, or giving the byrd (bird) can also put your identity at risk, so either embrace a 1950’s glove look or sit on your hands during your next photo op.

    That's really a great way of using modern technology, i think "Biometrics" system can help you to find real persons.
    With the help of free article rewriter tools, students can make a unique paragraph which can be checked in Google & Bing.
