Smartphones Will Snapshot Thieves And "Take" Fingerprints
According to this patent, the iPhone and the iPad in case of ‘suspicious’ use of the device, that will detect that it’s not the rightful owner, but someone else, through Touch ID will register the fingerprints and make a snapshot of the user via the frontal camera.
With the upload of this data to the Apple’s iCloud, the true owner of the phone will have the photograph and fingerprints of the thieve and can report to the police right away.
And of course, considering the fact that the rightful owner now already has the possibility to block the phone from a computer and delete it’s content, via iCloud can also activate the safety protocol and publish the fingerprints and the photo of the person that is using the device. But, since this patent is just recently registered, we shouldn’t expect that this option will be implemented in the Apple devices soon, but in some future models.
