Apple Touch ID is insecure

Less than a week after the release of Apple’s new iPhone 5c and iPhone 5s, the Chao Computer Club has released an article and a video showing that the Apple Touch ID technology is insecure and can be easily hacked by lifting a fingerprint from an object such as a glass, and then replicating the fingerprint using wood glue.

The moral of this story is that you should not trust Apple Touch ID or any fingerprint biometrics as your only source of security. Make sure that you protect your devices and personal data using more than just a fingerprint.
