What is Biometrics?

The field of biometrics examines the unique physical or behavioral traits that can be used to determine a person’s identity.

For example, fingerprint, face, or iris biometric features are sometimes described as single biometrics. Biometric technology can prevent fraud, enhance security, and curtail identity theft.
