Myris Iris Scanner Uses Your Eyes as Your Password

 |  |  |  |  |  |  January 22, 2014


A lot of people I know mix up their passwords because they have so many accounts online. Sometimes, it gets difficult to keep track of all the passwords you’ve created and used over the years.

Aiming to provide an alternative to passwords is eyeLock’s Myris iris scanner.

The Myris is exactly what its name implies. But how do you use it?

Well, first of all, you’ll have to set up a profile and key in all of your passwords. You’re then supposed to “teach” Myris how to recognize your eyeballs by following a short series of instructions. From that point forward, you will then be able to log in your email, bank, and social media accounts simply by having the Myris scan both of your eyes.

The team behind Myris claims that a double-iris scan is one of the most foolproof biometric security systems available, offering a false acceptance rate that is only bested by a DNA test. In fact, the chances of a false match are 1 in 2.25 trillion.
