Re: Eye I

But - and I know this has been said many times before - you can't change it either.

So the next time you get an email from your bank/ service provider about the recent security breach that resulted in the access details of 999999999999999999999999999999 people being copied, of whom you were one, and telling you to change your thumbprint/ retina print because the verification copy was kept at their end in a not-sufficiently encrypted form, oh and to do the same on all the other sites where you used the same access token - you're going to do, um, what?

Yes. I know there shouldn't be any form of remote copy. The word here is 'shouldn't'.

Any access element that cannot be changed in the event of a breach is a risk. Or at least, that's my view. Of course, I'm an Idiot...
