    Default Why Samsung's fingerprint sensor needs to face the same scrutiny as Apple's Touch ID

    Last week the new Samsung Galaxy S5 was introduced and along with it, Samsung's take on the fingerprint identity sensor. Apple, of course, introduced Touch ID fingerprint identity scanner alongside the iPhone 5s back in September of 2013. From launch Touch ID received considerable scrutiny over its implementation and its implications from the media, from security groups, and from the government. So, roughly 3 nano-seconds after the Galaxy S5 was swiped on stage, Apple enthusiasts began wondering out loud about just when exactly that same scrutiny would hit Samsung. Some felt it won't and that that's unfair. Others felt it won't and that that's perfectly reasonable. My take is that it has to, and not just for the sake of Apple/Samsung fairness, but for consumer confidence and the future.
