As reported by the publication of The Verge, Samsung company has patented another way to authenticate users – by scanning the palm of your hand. A patent is a 42-page document in the Korean language. Based on it, this method will complement the classic passwords.
Judging by the description, if the user forgets the password, the system will offer to take pictures with the palm of the main camera. If the lines on the hands coincide with those that are stored in the memory of the smartphone, the user will provide a series of tips that will help him to recover the password.
This is not the first such patent from Samsung. Previously, the company has patented scanning retina, facial recognition, fingerprints, and PIN-codes. In this case, it is unclear whether the new technique is implemented.
