Something went utterly wrong with the app ecosystem. Sure, if you can’t trust code, you sandbox it, but Android and IOS Sandbox everything. Why has it become the norm for Joe Average to deal with untrusted code?!
TLDR; Nope, you can't (and you shouldn't either).
Are digital assistants really time savers?
Why do smartphones have fingerprint sensors?
The three golden rules for password management are:
You always “write down” your fingerprints when touching a smooth surface. You can never change them and you (usually) have only 10 of them to begin with. Fingerprints violate all of the above rules, making them completely unfit for being used as password replacements. Smartphone manufacturers know that, but build fingerprint sensors into their devices nonetheless. Why? Because the point is not to actually protect anything on your phone, but to give you the illusion that only you can access it. Otherwise you wouldn’t trust it with your personal data.
Fingerprint sensors are not a security feature. They are simply part of the sales pitch.
Just think of ads as crappy loans: someone fronting the money to pay for a product (service, content) you use, in the understanding that eventually you will pay him back by buying his product (service, content) - it’s not really “free with ads” and the interest rate is horrible.
