Group-IB digital forensics specialist Igor Mikhailov told the Prime agency why you should not use a fingerprint on your phone.

According to him, locking a smartphone with a fingerprint reduces its security, as the fingerprint can be copied. In addition, it is possible to unlock the gadget with someone else’s fingerprints, especially on devices with an old sensor.

The most secure way to unlock a smartphone, according to Mikhailov, is to use complex passwords. He advised to turn off the fingerprint login and leave only the pin code.

As for unlocking a smartphone by face, Apple’s Face ID system is the most reliable, but even its enthusiasts managed to deceive with photos and masks of the owners.

According to Antutu experts, the reason for this is due to the large screen size of the iPhone 14 Pro Max. Assuming that the basic configuration of the two models is almost the same, the difference in screen size gives a difference of about 2000 pixels. The base model iPhone 14 got into the Antutu rating, but only in tenth place.

Last year’s iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max took eighth and seventh places, respectively, and the iPhone 13 was not included in the ranking.

The data was collected from September 1 to September 30, 2022. It is worth noting that the table shows the average, not the highest results, while at least 1000 tests were used for each model.
