    What are the Pros and Cons of fingerprint tracking
    We are developing are own tracking technology and I am looking at fingerprint tracking. IT says, well that won't work because computers are not unique.

    Does anyone have a link or document with information on the pros and cons on fingerprint tracking.

    Also I am interested to learn more about the specific way it works.

    Thank you!

    All kidding aside, I believe computers have unique MAC addresses. If you can capture that in your tracking, you'd be in good shape because I don't think any tracking systems out there capture MAC addresses.

    I see more cons with tracking fingerprints in a tracking system. I use a PC laptop that has a fingerprint reader. It is kind of nice being able to swipe my finger instead of entering passwords, but it also can be annoying asking for my fingerprint all the time, even when I don't want to give it. When I do swipe it, I know that I'm responsible for managing that fingerprint, and it is staying just on my machine. If I clicked an ad and was asked to provide my fingerprint, I wouldn't do it. I wouldn't feel comfortable releasing my biometric information into the Internet.
