The growing use of biometrics is becoming a reality in smartphones as well as in high security areas where fingerprint identification or facial recognition is becoming more popular.
Given the increased use of the technology in other areas of their lives, consumers want more biometric security in the workplace, according to a new survey from Veridium, a data authentication software maker.
The survey of 1,000 U.S. adults found that 70% of those surveyed would like biometric technology expanded into the workplace, citing speed, security and not having to remember passwords as the key factors.
Veridium said that mobile devices were the catalyst for the consumerization of biometric authentication, and since that time the technology has expanded to laptops, smart speakers and more.
Respondents also said they preferred fingerprint authentication over other biometrics such as facial recognition and voice recognition and over traditional passwords or PINs.
