    Ok.. how do you hack DNA??
    Have you ever seen a DNA slide?
    The system is only going to read certain areas.
    Perhaps you are contending that it will read the position of every atom in a DNA strand.

    Acquiring your DNA is easier than hacking your fingers off.

    I mean something like this:
    Still it will be a few years until we will have instant DNA readers built-in to PCs.

    A thing to consider is that even if biometric security is foolproof, it doesn't mean that stupid criminals will believe it .

    Check out the stories in these links for examples of dumb criminals:

    Smart criminals would just use other methods (e.g. kidnapping family members, etc.).

    If one decides to use their fingerprint or a eye scan will they still be able to use a password? If not what would happen if they injured their finger or eye. How would they log in?

    Indeed.

    When I worked as an electronic repair tech, some of my fingerprints would get melted after touching hot components (a few times per year).
