Biometric and wearable authentication is more secure and more convenient and would almost instantly mitigate a massive amount of cybersecurity vulnerability.

And when the biometric database (eventually) is in the hands of the criminals, who is secure then? We will all be asked to change our fingerprints, get a new face and pop in some new eyes.

There is one constant in security: there is no ultimate security; it is a process.

Pretending that you can magically solve many problems with biometric data is worse than forcing someone to change his/her passwords once in a while.
