Posted February 02, 2018 12:04:08More than 200,000 people in the US have been reported as having received the new “Fingerprint-Track” device, a new smartphone feature that can track their every move using their fingerprint.
The technology, known as “fingerprint tracking”, is a feature that allows a device to unlock an iPhone by simply tapping the sensor.
The feature can be used to track a user’s location, phone number and email address.
The feature was first introduced to the iPhone 6S and iPhone 6s Plus in November, and the technology is also being used to unlock Apple Pay in the UK, where users can use a fingerprint reader to unlock their phones.
Apple said in November it would add fingerprint recognition to its devices after testing its software with hundreds of thousands of users. More:
