Your pulse can be your new password

  • If you keep forgetting your password then a Canadian company has a solution for you. The "Nymi" wristband reads your heartbeat, which is unique just like your fingerprints and uses the same to unlock devices such as your cars and computers. 

    According to the company, the device will verify your pulse only once and when you are wearing it. Hence, you don't have to fear being locked out if you are stressed or have just worked out. 

    Even though the wristband sounds more efficient than having passwords, experts have warned that hackers could easily target it by intercepting the signal when soemeone is logging into their phones. 

    A security researcher said he'd like to see something like this to work out but it is important for some experts to test it before people use it for things that are extremely important.
