In this modern world, data security is everything. The current pandemic has forced most of our lives to go almost completely digital, whether we wanted to or not. Socially, we are posting more through online platforms, businesses are sharing more work over the web and thus the security of all this data is paramount. As technology has improved, typical passwords are starting to become out dated. Now, your own human features might act as your password to the future, we’ve all heard of biometrics.
