Adoption of fingerprint biometrics has demonstrated the readiness and acceptance of biometrics as an added layer of security by consumers. This ready acceptance and adoption of fingerprint biometrics by consumers is plain evidence of both the desire of the public for better security and the willingness to adopt biometrics embedded into everyday devices said today SmartMetric's President & CEO, Chaya Hendrick.
