Why is it that, every once in a while, my phone will say “for additional security, please enter your password” when I go to unlock it? Why is a several letter password that can be known or guessed considered additional security to my fingerprint, which I assume is a lot harder to fake? Do people know what they’re doing, or is pretending to be secure as good as being secure?
