    Hah, just saw this on Reddit. Besides thumbprints being super easy to circumvent, there is also a different kind of hack out there that uses the front camera of a device to read the reflections in a user's eyes in order to steal passwords. Coreneal scanning.

    So that 2mp front camera...is actually a security benefit. Kidding of course, but it's certainly interesting to consider.
