Is your Biometric Fingerprint data safe with Biometric Time Solutions?

Biometric time and attendance systems utilize unique physiological traits like fingerprints to authenticate employee identities during clock-in and clock-out processes. This advanced technology not only guarantees improves the authenticity of time and attendance data but also enhances access control security. Even though there are exceptional benefits to installing biometric fingerprint based time and attendance solutions, there are concerns about exposing one’s biometric data to hackers and identity theft. In this article, we explore how Biometric Time Solutions addresses these concerns.

Common Areas of Concern with Fingerprint Systems

  • Sharing of biometric fingerprints with outside organisations
  • Can your biometric fingerprint be stolen?
  • Can your biometric fingerprint be used by another employee? 
  • Can your biometric fingerprint be sent to law enforcement or the police?
  • Can my employer use my biometric fingerprint for anything else besides the Biometric Time Solutions system?

How Biometric Time Solutions secures your biometric fingerprints 

  • Sharing of biometric fingerprints with outside organisations:

Biometric Time Solutions is fully complaint with the Popia Act. The Act is designed to prevent organisations from sharing your personal information including your biometric fingerprints

  • Can your biometric fingerprint be stolen?

Biometric Time Solutions utilizes the latest and best security protocols when securing your data, whether this data is resting mode (stored on the server) or transfer mode (data sent between server and fingerprint reader). This includes your biometric fingerprint data.  

  • Can your biometric fingerprint be used by another employee?

When your fingerprint is captured on the system it can only be assigned when your personal record is open in our time and attendance software, therefore preventing the software operator from mixing up your fingerprint with another employee. Also, when you scan your fingerprint on the biometric fingerprint reader your name will show on the reader thereby proving your fingerprint is assigned to you. 

  • Can your biometric fingerprint be sent to law enforcement or the police?

The short answer is no, the police cannot use the time and attendance fingerprints for law enforcement purposes. Fingerprints are not stored as images in the Biometric Time Solutions system. Fingerprints are stored as encrypted algorithms which can only be deciphered by our time and attendance software. The police do not have the ability to convert the algorithms into fingerprint images.

  • Can my employer use my biometric fingerprint for anything else besides the Biometric Time Solutions system?

No, due to the fact that your fingerprints are encrypted in our time and attendance software, they are of no use to anyone or anything else besides the Biometric Time Solutions system. Your fingerprints can only be used for time and attendance and access control.
