    Does the scanner is on the bottom of the display or rear of the phone under camera ?

    Likely on the back, but as no official images have leaked, it's anyone's guess.

    It's definitely on the back. I'm sure blaze knows that but must play the part.

    They're not secure and I won't use it, but plenty of people want it, secure or not.

    Do you think scanner on the Idol 4 pro is an upgrade from the 4S? I've seen a few reviews on the 4S that say it's not very consistent.

    I think it's probably the same one.

    I hope blackberry makes the thumbprint scanner more secure by adding their own encryption tech or something

    I'm ready for live photos of the phone in its entirety. I guess the guessing game will have to suffice.
    I never was interested in using a fingerprint scanner, but now the reveiwers can highlight this addition as BlackBerry being late to the game, etc.

    That's not even the right device. It's just some other TCL phone he snagged an image for for reference. The camera doesn't even match up with the DTEK60.

    Same what happened to the hype with Edward Snowden. WhatsApp wants to share everything with Facebook now and no one complaints and is still using WhatsApp AND Facebook.

    Where is the fingerprint stored? Sandboxed in phone or in the cloud?

    Is it secured by BlackBerry or Google?

    That's an interesting question to ask about a device, when properly used, has a surface that is covered with the user's fingerprints.

    Yeah, that is a problem you know.....

    With that said the implementation of "fingerprint scanners" are supposed to store the data in the TCM (trusted computing module) which is unsealed at boot time. It is, theoretically, not supposed to be possible to forcibly extract said data. The same facility is used to store private keys for certificate use (which is why the Priv, for example, demands that you have a password or PIN set before it will allow you to store a VPN certificate; it wants to stuff that in the TCM, and to do so the TCM needs to have a key established.)

    With Touch ID, at least, the module is incapable of outputting the data - it only will compare an input to what it stored from a previous input and output the positive or negative result. Also, what is stored is a hash which means reconstructing a fingerprint from a hash would be like reconstructing a song recording from the lyrics. You can always get the lyrics from the recording a song but you can never reconstruct a recording from the lyrics.

    Would it not have to be stored in device? Think about if phone is on Airplane mode?

    Anyway, You would have to consent to having bio metrics being stored in the cloud. I doubt Google would want to take on that liability of storing that information and regardless of that I am pretty sure the law does not allow that to happen.

    Sure it is... (incapable); I note that the module has updateable firmware....

    Thanks early2bed and tickerguy. That was very helpful and informative.

    It gives me more comfort in considering use of a fingerprint scanner.

    I must admit that I really do like picture password though.
