All that you would need would be a recording or a fingerprint duplicate from some other object. Not that that's going to be easy to obtain, but if the password was also implemented it would make it just that much harder to access the device. I don't see a reason for not having both. Interesting concept though.<br><br>This also brings up the issue of what if the recording/scanning device gets messed up or you lose your voice or lol accidentally burn off your fingerprints? Can you not access your important files anymore?

You can store each of your 10 fingers prints, so if you just happen to lose one you can still get in. But if you want to get the mother of all secured flash drives, get yourself an Ironkey. This little thing comes equip with its own mini nuclear war head.
Something I found quite interesting. Apparently a PCMag award winner device for secure password storage and management. I wonder if they have stuff like this with an additional layer of security added with biometrics. I have seen a couple of flash drive with biometrics only but that alone causes them to be vulnerable. What are your thoughts on this device and biometric flash drives? Would love some feedback.
