Why Face and Eye Scanning Will Replace Passwords

Apple’s upcoming iPhone 8, or whatever they will call it, has been in the news a lot lately. Reports suggest that the company has had trouble getting Touch ID on the glass screen to work and instead may be moving to using the camera for ID and eye scans to replace the using a fingerprint for Touch ID.

I hope this is true because this is by far the easiest and, what I consider the best way, to authenticate a person when accessing their iPhone. Samsung has this feature on the new Samsung 8S, and it is a dream to use instead of the fingerprint reader on the back that is very awkward.
