Berlin, Sep 15 (EFE).- The biometric fingerprint sensor on the iPhone 5c, one of the new smartphones unveiled by Apple Inc., raises privacy concerns because all the information gathered by the device is "unerasable," German information security expert Johannes Caspar said.
"The biometric fingerprints cannot be erased. They are with us for life. So, therefore, they should not be given up with a simple digital action as part of a routine identity authentication process, especially on systems that warehouse data," the professor told the weekly Der Spiegel.
