Together this may mark the beginning of the end of this era of ‘spoofable’ security solutions; with the ease of hacking fingerprint sensors using household items like gummi bears and tape, spoof proofing is a critical requirement for any new solutions. As a result, 2D image verification will likely disappear as a security solution in the next few years.
By 2019, all premium smartphones will support face recognition based on 3D sensing camera technology.
