Fingerprints are user names, not passwords.


@polychrome @theruran All security schemes depend on your threat model. If a device is usually in your possession, rarely left unattended in insecure spaces, and the device locks out fingerprint auth under the right conditions (too many failed attempts, time since last auth, sitting on a desk for some period of time), fingerprints are reasonably secure against casual snooping. They're also a somewhat better presence indicator than simply tapping on a bit of metal like with the Yubikey Nano.
