Mobile security has long been a subject of concern for many people and brands around the world. I am not talking about the online security that sometimes doesn’t hold up to whatever evil is trying to crack it. No, I am talking about the hardware security of our mobile devices. There have been plenty of examples of this over the years. One particular one is the “incident” where a camouflaged iPhone 4 got stolen and later ended up in Gizmodo’s office, which we all know ended in a worldwide iPhone 4 leak. In that particular case, it wasn’t so much the software that was exposed. When that happens, it can mean a significant loss for the owner and company. That’s why I think the up-and-coming biometric security is such a brilliant addition to any mobile gadget.
Biometric security is basically a feature that scans your fingertips, eyes or even saliva to decide whether the right person is accessing the device. It’s one of the safest security systems on the market, and it could soon come to an iPhone case near you. PIPA Solutions Ltd. is a company that has been working on a smartphone case that will reinvent the way you secure your mobile device. The solution is called PIPA Touch, and it is a biometric security system all housed in an iPhone case.
There have been other biometric security cases for smartphones in the past, but this one is one of the coolest to date. On the back of your smartphone, you will find a fingerprint scanner. Press it and you will be granted access to your smartphone, if you are the owner of it that is. The PIPA Touch concept is currently looking for funding in order to finalize their invention. They are looking to raise $100,000 for their biometric security system, and so far they have managed to amass around $5,000. With 26 days to go, this shouldn’t be an impossible task, but without your help, it won’t get anywhere. So if you would like your iPhone or smartphone to become more secure than ever with this biometric security system, head over to their IndieGoGo project and pledge. For just $59.00 you will get your very own iPhone 4/S or iPhone 5 biometric system PIPA Touch case when it is completed. Never again will you have to worry about losing the personal, important or sensitive information stored on your smartphone.
