Biometrics Institute sees rise in biometrics among mobile devices

July 9, 2014 - 

The Biometrics Institute released the results of its 2014 Industry Survey, which saw a significant rise in the use of biometrics among mobile devices over the past year.

The survey, which is now in its fifth year, gives Biometrics Institute members a considerable insight into the various trends and developments of the biometrics industry.

“The adoption/use of biometrics on mobile devices was seen as the most significant development in the biometrics world over the last 12 months,” said Isabelle Moeller, CEO of the Biometrics Institute. “This confirms the discussions we have seen amongst our members at the various Biometrics Institute e vents and reinforces why we are so pleased to confirm that Samsung Electronics are presenting at this year’s Biometrics 2014: The future of identity starts here! conference and exhibition organized by Elsevier in partnership with the Biometrics Institute (October 21-23 in London).”

Back in mid-April, Biometrics Institute sent the survey by email to approximately 4,000 people, comprised of members, key stakeholders and media contacts before officially closing last month.

The survey participants hailed from countries around the world, including Australia, New Zealand, Europe, Singapore and the United States. In the end, a total of 323 people responded to the survey — 36% of which are Biometrics Institute members.

The full report can now be downloaded by members at the Biometrics Institute website’s resource library.

The organization will also highlight the results at the first USA Member Meeting on September 23 in Washington DC, as previous reported in BiometricUpdate.com, as well as at Biometrics 2014 (October 21-23 in London) and the Showcase Australia 2014 (November 18 in Canberra).
