TrueTouch® Fingerprint Reader

Modern mobile devices contain large amounts of personal data, including email credentials, credit card information, private photographs, videos, and web browsing history. This concentration of personal data makes the mobile device a prime target for data and identity theft. Mobile device manufacturers (OEMs) and e-commerce merchants are reacting by increasing authentication strength. The traditional approach is to make users input complex passwords. These complex passwords are cumbersome to enter and do not effectively increase security. So what is the ideal security mechanism?

Fingerprint readers.

Fingerprint readers are a convenient and secure way to access mobile devices and the Cypress TrueTouch® Fingerprint Reader is specifically designed for them.

Convenient, secure, flexible
