Prophecy Sign: The coming 'Mark of the Beast' identification system
It also forced all people, great and small, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hands or on their foreheads, so that they could not buy or sell unless they had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of its name. Revelation 13:16-17 NIV
Young people 'ready to ditch passwords for biometric security'
Three-quarters of 16- to 24-year-olds are ready to ditch passwords in favour of biometric security measures such as facial recognition, fingerprint and retina scanning, research has revealed. In a survey of over 2,000 UK adults commissioned by Visa Europe, 76 per cent said they would feel comfortable making a payment using biometric security and 69 per cent believe this would make their lives faster and easier. Of the biometric payment methods available to consumers, 16- to 24-year-olds are most keen on verification via fingerprint scanning, with 70 per cent predicting that this will be the primary form of identification by 2020. Other methods of interest to this generation include retina scans (39pc) and facial recognition (27pc), though voice recognition (12pc), fast DNA samples (15pc) and implanted chips (16pc) remain less popular at present.
