Forget typing in your password the next time you log on to watch porn, now you can just log in using your penis.
CamSoda, a webcam platform, has released an innovative way to keep your account secure. They’ve launched something called dick-ometrics, and as the name suggests, it allows you to use your penis as a way of uniquely identifying yourself.
Basically if you have a penis, you can use that instead of a password (the technology isn’t there for women…yet). Just upload a photo of your member to the website and from then on, when you go to log on to the site, they’ll use their “proprietary Penis Recognition Tech” to match your penis to the original photo you added to your account. It works the same way as when you use your fingerprint to unlock your iPhone, except a bit more invasive.
Darren Press, VP for the company, explained why they chose “dick-ometrics” in favour of a more traditional biometric password.
“Like a fingerprint and an eyeball, which are two of most commonly used body parts in biometric technologies, the penis has many, many differentiating factors like size, color, and vein protrusion,” Darren explained in a statement. “However, unlike fingerprints and eyeballs, penises are not exposed to the public a lot of the time and mostly kept under clothing and shared with loved ones – presumably who are trusted.”
“In order to ensure personal data is safeguarded against unwarranted individuals, biometrics have become progressively popular for its ability to provide a layer of security that is impenetrable,” he explained. “With the launch of dick-ometrics, we are taking things to the next level.”
