People know that fingerprint recognition is a secure and convenient technology that has become common and widespread. In the past three months, the global outbreak of COVID-19 is raising questions about how safe using fingerprint authentication actually is as touching the sensors can potentially spread the virus.
Every day the cases are rapidly increasing worldwide; health care workers, business & government officials continue to take the necessary precautions to stop the spread. In this segment, we are going to acquire certain useful information regarding the ways to safely use the Biometric Attendance System and the use-value of the technology in the upcoming session.
In the current scenario, people are asking questions like fingerprint scanner is safe or not. A short answer to this, fingerprint recognition is entirely safe from spreading viruses. Its surface is less to be contaminated than other surfaces such as door handles and elevator buttons. However, the sensible use of technology can help to prevent the spread of the virus significantly.
According to the study, researchers said that a person gets Coronavirus by touching a surface that has the virus on it. Hence, it is essential to maintain a clean surface on the Time Attendance Machine and without any scratches. Otherwise, there could be problems with the device and the degraded performance of the scanner.
Proper maintenance & to give a long lasting wholesome effect to a fingerprint scanner is crucial, ensuring hygiene, and sustaining their work-ability. For the best results, you should follow the biometric fingerprint sensor recommended cleaning process:
