Smartphones are getting more and more popular. They are not only used for phone calls; people write emails on the smartphone, use online banking, and save private data and pictures on the smartphone. These activities should be comprehensively protected against unauthorized access.
Therefore Fujitsu will introduce an iris scanner, which can unlock the smartphone. This method is considered to be very secure, because the smartphone owner will be identified by the iris in their eye. The coloured area in a human eye is unique, so that a stranger cannot use or unlock the phone.
The functionality is very easy: first, the iris of the smartphone owner has to be registered and then the iris will be scanned to unlock the smartphone.
Thereby, smartphones should become more secure!
