Re: Biometric?

HSBC asked me a while ago if I wanted to adopt their shiny new voice-recognition system instead of my old password that has never ever been hacked. I said no and they asked why not. "Because I work in IT and know enough to know that it will fail," I said. It got hacked by a journalist imitating his brother's voice a few months later.

Thank God it was optional.
