You know, it occurs to me that while made it tougher for someone to get into your through a phone backup, they made it super easy for law enforcement to unlock a phone, didn’t they?

And in many countries—including the US—the police can legally force you to use your fingerprint to unlock your phone. So they can most certainly point your phone at your face and unlock it against your will.

If you value the of your data—your email, social media accounts, family photos, the history of every place you’ve ever been with your phone—then I recommend against using biometric identification.


Instead, use a passcode to unlock your phone.
