Do you feel secure with your Apple device’s level of protection? Well if you hesitated even for a moment, you can now rest assured. the latest and greatest from the creative “genius” minds of Apple have unveiled the new and improved TouchID featuring, wait for it futuristic freaks, fingerprint identification.

Apple’s Touch ID – The Future is Now

Instead of relying on just a passcode or a marginally more complicated password, when Apple’s Touch ID sensor rolled out the concept of “biometric detection” or fingerprint scanning, based on the owner’s stored print in a Secure Enclave on the tool, a new generation of Security was born. While most high-tech device users desire higher security measures, it seems the Touch ID has also caused some confusion after it started to ask for passcodes at really random times.

Previously, what would happen with your locked computer/phone is that Touch ID would be temporarily disabled at the system level when it restarted or when an undocumented fingerprint touched the sensor, causing verification to fail five times. For security reasons, iOS would just force you to attempt to access the device to entering the assigned passcode/password for access. Also, many noticed that after an eight hours plus slumber, and/or you have not entered the passcode into the phone for six days, was that you would have to unlock the phone/tablet with your passcode/password.

It is perfectly reasonable that Apple would go to great lengths to protect the safety of the data on its products and protect them from malevolent attacks or invasions. So, if you utilize Apple devices (i.e. iPhone, iPad, computer) and the iOS is seemingly suddenly asking for your passcode at random times, it may actually be that the latest rule of thumb for TouchID’s security protection has in fact taken a measured interval and is most likely the cause. Be aware, if you remain inactive on your technological tool for over 8 hours then you will be required to enter your certified passcode.

Remember, Touch ID was universally welcomed as a security addition to Apple’s mobiles when it was initially introduced back on the iPhone 5s.
