Millions of smartphones are spread around the world. With various brands and types that are certainly in accordance with the needs of users.

Some of these types of security features may be familiar readers. Start in the form of software or a piece of hardware. I'll talk about a few of these features. It starts with:

Finger Print is applied to smartphones through hardware. Almost all samrtphone products already have it, even in low end smartphones already exist. The first finger print technology was used by the FBI in 1969. Finger print records our fingerprint patterns. It is then stored in the Smartphone OS database. Keep in mind that what is recorded by hardware is not all our finger lines. Cuma is only the end of the line (ridge ending) a branched line (bifurcation) and a short line resembling a point (short ridge). These three details according to research will not be the same in every human being. With certain biometric mechanisms, this finger print can be run quickly.

Security Features In SmartPhone Smart Lock on Android Lollipop

This one technology is still new, introduced in android Lollipop (android 5.0). The use of Smart Lock is actually very easy, this one technology seems to be connected to the ecosystem from Google. Smartlock-enabled devices will open automatically when you know your voice, your device and where you are. This technology is still being developed by Google with its Android. Maybe in the future all androids will use this feature, because currently only high end phones are used, because it needs certain sensor sensors in its use.
