Finger Scanner



    Finger Scanner's review

    Published: 2014-05-07, by Janel.

    Fake out your friends with this fake fingerprint scanner

    • Trick the gullible into thinking your device has advanced scanning tech
    • Keep your kids from using your device
    • Customizable visuals and "scanning time"
    • Will only fool the very simple
    • App doesn't actually do anything

    "Where in the whorl?"

    Oh ho ho, you merry prankster, you. Make like your device responds to your fingerprint alone with Łukasz Kosowski's Finger Scanner, which gives the appearance of scanning without actually doing anything at all.

    Set the app to pop up as your lock screen. You'll be prompted to place your finger on the scanner, and then the app appears to give it a reading. Secretly, though, you have to place one of your other fingers over the camera to be allowed entrance - it has nothing to do with your fingerprint. Appearance is fairly customizable, and you can also specify the scanning time.

    Łukasz Kosowski's Finger Scanner might be a funny joke to pull on very young children - in fact, I can see it being a handy way to get your kids to leave your device alone. Other than that, though, it's a fairly one-trick pony app.
