Move over, fingerprints: Samsung patents palm-scanning
Samsung seems to be dabbling in adding an extra biometric scan — palm recognition. The difference here is that it's not going to be used for unlocking your phone, but merely for password hints.
Yeah, that sounds a bit weird and a bit too complex. And it does raise questions whether someone would be able to use your phone if they manage to force you to open your palm. What's wrong with regular password hints, where we type out a riddle that only we can answer? It's a curious patent for sure, and we'll see if it ever gets implemented into tech.
