Biometrics provide increased levels of assurance to providers that a person is real by verifying a tangible. Additionally, biometrics can only be provided by living, breathing people
Biometrics like face patterns, fingerprints, iris scanning, and others are near-impossible to replicate with current technology. There's a one in 64 billion chance that your fingerprint will match up exactly with someone else's. Said a different way, you have a better chance winning the lottery than having the same fingerprint as a hacker trying to get into your account that’s secured by biometrics.
