    How about a chip implant with GPS & bluetooth? Vets are pretty cheap!

    Yes I do clean browser history and run quick scans before I shut down my computer.
    I also type in my password every time a password is needed.
    That of course leaves me open to 'keyloggers' and that is why I do all the scans.
    Another advantage I have is I don't do anything that has to do with money on line.
    I also don't do any social media on line.
    My phone has a tail, No cell phone.
    I get very few emails and of course don't open them unless I'm sure who and why the emails were sent to me.
    Anything I download I scan before I use the "exe." Ect. ect. ect.
    Just basic and simple security things I do and recommend to everyone.
    What little I have I would like to keep.

    The point I'm was trying to get to is simple.

    A password that is stolen can be changed.
    Picture of your face, finger print, DNA and eye scans, ect. once stolen, can not be changed.
    One could of course go back to 'Passwords' if such items are hacked.

    I sign into my iPhone via fingerprint and I've just got a new laptop and used Hello to sign in via my mug shot.

    I have heard of a replacement for the conventional entry verifications (password etc.) which involves the user making hand gestures on the screen, perhaps upwards left of screen, curved downwards in screen centre, then to the right. If this works it seems to be immune to easy hacking or theft or being stolen.

    Is it available?

    Hand gestures?

    Don't even get me started on that one!!!

    Can you imagine a whole floor of office employees waving frantically in front of their workstations all day?

    Hand gestures is called a company authorized exercise program.

    I am not going there!!! Too many inappropriate gestures come to mind.

    Happy New Year.
