Compared with the current mainstream biometric technologies such as fingerprints, this technology has advantages in privacy, security, contactlessness, and rapid recognition, but the recognition accuracy and other information are still unknown. In addition, it is currently only supported by Amazon’s own store, and it is unclear whether domestic companies will introduce this technology .
