CRIME NEWS: 3D Printed Fingerprints Can Unlock Your Device With 80% Success Rate
Researchers have demonstrated how 3D printing could be used to clone fingerprints with an 80% success rate of bypassing biometric security of notable manufacturers.
To understand how they conducted these attacks, we need to look at a number of steps involved. Firstly is the collection of the fingerprints themselves which were done in multiple ways depending on different situations:
Direct collection in the scenario where the victim has no control over their body and their fingerprint can be taken from them without their consent.
Using a sensor that is found normally at airports when checking into immigration or during the boarding process.
Lifting the fingerprint from an object the victim touched. For example, one could use a glass someone laid their hands on to extract the fingerprint.

How Do You Properly Report Scammers?
It is essential that law enforcement knows about scams & scammers, even though there is nothing (in most cases) that they can do.
Always report scams involving money lost or where you received money to:
- Local Police – ask them to take an “informational” police report – say you need it for your insurance [use caution, not advisable in all countries]
- Your National Police or FBI «www.IC3.gov» OR from within the U.S. «tips.FBI.gov»
- The Scars Worldwide Reporting Network «HERE» or on «www.Anyscam.com» [available anywhere]
This helps your government understand the problem, and allows law enforcement to add scammers on watch lists worldwide.
