Can't... swipe... any longer...

Wow, now we're too lazy for "cumbersome" swipe motions... maybe newer devices will float so that we no longer have to wear out our arms holding them.
Ummmm, I think that's called Bluetooth...
if youve ever seen/used how its completed on the iPhones lately its a very secure way thats it done very detailed, i personally havent used one that you have to swipe but heared it wasnt as good

More swipe than touch 2015

Kathy Bayless the CFO at Synaptics points to more sales in swipe than touch for 2015 in their rescent webcast.

Synaptics mounted a touch sensor on the back of a Samsung S5 instead of in the home-button and showed it at the CES 2015 event. Rich Brome admits to that it works perfectly, but is the timing off for Synaptics with Samsung?

My guess is that FPC, Fingerprint Cards will provide Samsung with a touch fingerprint sensor for the S6.

I mean its great you get extra security on your phone, but fingerprint scanner on your phone seems a little exaggerated. I think they should switch over to 'retinal scanning' that's the future, in my opinion 😁
Have you tried TouchID on an iPhone? It's pretty great. Everyone should lock their phone, but codes are an extra step and often easy to guess from finger smudges.
