Do you trust Apple's Touch ID?

Click here for a poll where readers are asked to state whether they "trust" the Touch ID feature which is is available on the latest iPhones and iPads. With the release of iOS 8, the Touch ID APIs were made available for developers, meaning that the use of Touch ID will be possible in apps, not just on Apple's devices. However, users are still hesitant, as recent news of high profile breaches are bringing to light how easy it can be to get user data and use it for nefarious purposes. One of the dangers of fingerprint and other similar biometric technologies is that they cannot be changed - and can be permanently compromised. Still, where many users seem to be hesitant even as Touch ID is presented as a more secure alternative to a traditional password or PIN, many others are ready to embrace new authentication technologies.
