Are you kidding me? Oh my goodness....

Listen folks... please...

1) Thumbprints can not be changed.
2) Due to #1, you need to protect your fingerprint data
3) You can change a credit card #, but not your fingerprints
4) If your prints are compromised, you are screwed

DO NOT SEND YOUR PRINT to ANYONE. Especially a grocery store!!!!!

What will they do with it? Who are you sending it to? Who has access to it? Who will be given this information later? Will it be on a laptop that someone steals? Or on a server that someone hacks?

Your prints are crucial. Software claims to help protect your data. This is NOT true. ALL software stores their encryption keys in MSFT's operating system. We all know Microsoft issues patches for their Operating Systems monthly.

It has been determined that the operating system will NEVER be secure. This is the reason you should never send your print to anyone.

There is only one solution. That solution is to store encryption keys in hardware, before the operating system boots up. This is called "PRE-BOOT" authentication.

Buy only computers with a TPM chip in them (Trusted Platform Module) it is like having a marine guard with an M-16 guarding a small safe in your computer. Enter your CC# into encrypted software to "auto-fill" out webpages. This software is included on these PCs with the TPM. It costs you NOTHING. This is an encrypted format for your credit card number. It is much safer and prevents any keyboard sniffing.

There is much to learn, but do yourself a favor and get a PC with a TPM in it:

Methinks you'v missed the whole point.

Your forcing crooks into leaving THEIR prints if they wish to use your personal information or documentation for personal gain.

Uh...no. You don't get the problem here.

1) Someone has your fingerprint, and it is not secured. Who do they share this info with? What minimum-wage employee is going to sell this? Happens EVERYDAY.

2) If your fingerprint is compromised, you cannot change it.

3) What is to stop someone like my ex-roomate from stealing my identity by giving his fingerprint with my name, etc.

This website and opt-in program is a joke and you should avoid it. If you are affiliated with that program in any way, I feel for you. Why? your IP address will be timestamped coming here where you were informed of the dangers. Once someone hacks that site, you are going to have a huge liability issue on your hands that will cost you millions to correct.

Read the recent TJX Company news. They are getting hammered and suits are being filed as we speak, some already announced. 47.5 million accounts were hacked. You may be in the UK, but identity is too serious to not sue over. The FBI claims it costs several thousand dollars and hundreds of hours of time to clear up one incident. You are exposing all your people to major issues with compromised fingerprints. Good luck.
