    Welcome to ITKE, melclay27! Biometrics is the technology that allows people to measure and statistically analyze biological data. Usually, it also refers to measuring and analyzing human body characteristics including fingerprints and voice patterns.

    Biometrics can provide another layer of security. Basically biological input. You have seen this in movies with eye retina scans and fingerprint scans for access to secures buildings, computer and others. It's a growing technology but still has flaws. I saw a show on the Discovery Channel, Mythbusters, and they were able to get past a fingerprint door lock with just a little effort.
    So it is not perfect, but getting better.
