Picture of How to Fool a Fingerprint Security System As Easy As ABC

This instruction will show you how to Fool a fingerprint security system as easy as ABC. IBM never want you to know about,. it works for most of the fingerprint security system too. For example: eg. door, mobile phone....

This instruction come with video:

my personal blog is

Step 1: Use These 3 Points

Picture of Use These 3 Points

The scanner used in this hack stores only there special points of the user's fingerprint

Step 2: Tools

Picture of Tools

Here are what you will need: Digital camera, wood-glue, super-glue, skin friendly-glue and a bottle cap,

Step 3: Find a Real Fingerprint

Picture of Find a Real Fingerprint

Now we need the real fingerprint we found it on a bottle, put a few drop super-glue into the cap

Step 4: Vapors Recation

Picture of Vapors Recation

The vapors react with the grease and make the fingerprint visible

Step 5: Make a Copy

Picture of Make a Copy

make sure the copy match to the original size

Step 6: Print It Out

Picture of Print It Out

use a laser printer to print in onto a foil slide, sweep some wood-glue on it and use it as the dummy later

Step 7: Cut It Out

Picture of Cut It Out

wait it dry and cut it out

Step 8: Take It Out

Picture of Take It Out

remove the dry glue carefully

Step 9: Ready to Use

Picture of Ready to Use

Dummy, ready to use

Step 10: Test It Now

Test it

What!!!?!!!??? the video "has been removed from metacafe" wondering if you can bring it back up or what!!???! hurry up I need to go rob some peoples houses this weekend, and I could definitely use this :) also they did this on mythbuster to see if they could fool a safe.

galeb (author)slimguy3792015-05-13

That is why it is better to put your video on YouTube, they usually will not remove one if not a copyright violation

yippy! (author)2010-03-16

thats why they usualy hava a security cam facing the machine

some fingerprint scanners can be fooled by just printing the print on a piece off paper lick it and then press it on the glass with your own finger, even some high security ones can be fooled like this

redneckjaybyrd (author)2009-07-06

With some fingerprint security systems, if the person whose print you need used the fingerprint security system last, you can just breath on it like you would if you were cleaning your glasses and then press down with a piece of wax paper or something like that.

SleepCommand (author)2009-06-29

When spoofing a finger print security system just remember that after someone uses it to gain access they leave something behind.... A finger print. People don't usually wipe their print off the glass after they use it. Just lift the finger print using a plastic sheet (comic book/magazine covers work well). Expose the print using chemicals (super glue method works) and reapply to the scanner with tan or dull colored clay behind it.

belgin fish (author)2008-06-13

actualy, you wouldnt cut the finger off, the laptop or computer actualy looks at electro magnet pulses in the finger to see if its alive ;) or whatever its called

ReCreate (author)belgin fish2009-01-29

so if they take an amputated finger and put it there it will say that it is dead?

mna wyh bda selping? there is a spell checker Built into Firefox you know

bobt4 (author)ReCreate2009-06-11

ok but its faster when its misspelled

It won't Hurt to spend a few seconds right clicking on red underlined text

ReCreate (author)matbh2009-03-18

ERROR - That is not a live finger,take it back to the hospital and return it to its respective owner,NOW!

bobt4 (author)ReCreate2009-06-07

what is this Al Queda? dude why are u talkin about cut fingers???lol

AL Queda? It sounds like a taco.

electro magnet pulses, eh? Not sure... I've not got a robot finger scanner, mine only work on humans. There are a few high-end scanners that check for a pulse. (That's a regular pulse from the beating of the heart, nothing fancy like you've got, Mr. Robotnic) Few and far between. There are two main current technologies, one uses a solid state heat sensor that is so sensitive it can pick up the heat differences between the ridges of the fingerprint and the troughs, and there are capacitive types that are tiny multi-point touch sensors. The oldest ones use a CMOS camera or the like and do an optical comparison, but they are terrible at matching a print as any dirt, ink or dust means it fails. IMO there are no fingerprint scanners ready for prime-time without specialist training and support. Even the multi-million pound IRIS (eyeball) scanners at UK airports are off-line now due to not working. Biometrics isn't dead, but it is a very limited use technology.

wait, then wouldnt it be able to tell that the wood glue isnt a living finger?

awang8 (author)ledzep5672008-12-21

Uhh... No because your finger is on top of the dummy fingerprint with is so tediously thin the electromagnetic pulses penetrate right through it.

um... wut kind of laptop do you have?

GorillazMiko (author)2007-12-03

cool! mythbusters is an awesome show, good thing you brought it to here. mythbusters do a lot of cool things, that would be cool if they were a member for this site..

Yeah sure it will be, if they didn't say all the times : Give us a break don't try this a home. But it's cool that people who know how to make the tricks we see in mythbuster show us how to do it, well... at home! Nice Instructable!

ReCreate (author)lordofthedonuts2009-06-07

What they really are saying it"Give us a brake, Don't Sue us, We warned you now."

ReCreate (author)ReCreate2009-06-07

IS- Not It XD

Yeah some of the stuff on mythbusters is safe to do at home. For example, the fingerprint episode, the one where they flip the buttered and unbuttered toast, the episode where they try to walk on water with wooden shoes, and the diet coke and mentos one.

Gilo (author)chardster2009-01-03

Mythbusters did not show the whole thing on TV not that it is not safe but so that crooks and other bad guys would not get the idea. Its a bit dangerous to let the whole world know about things like this.

FuzzyBearGeek (author)Gilo2009-03-28

Yeah right.... Information was meant to be free.

santy22 (author)chardster2008-09-18

mmmm diet coke and mentos, drink one and eat some mentos be4 a test, put your cheat-sheet in the bathroom and believe me, the M-C preparation will make you asplode indside and you will have real signs of having to go to the bathroom. Tehen you cheat and flush the cheats so nobody else sees them again. I could make an instructable on that!

chardster (author)santy222008-09-20

Or you could study...

santy22 (author)chardster2008-10-04


awang8 (author)santy222008-12-21

Studying's too boring. I'm better off looking at por-... I mean Instructables projects. *runs away*

ReCreate (author)awang82009-01-29

i much rather prefer option 2

Gilo (author)lordofthedonuts2009-01-03

anybody there who's got a software for reading fingerprints?

yeah they did do this on mythbusters!!!!!!

bassmonkey (author)2009-05-02

the "ABC's" keep getting harder...

HardCoreHacker (author)2008-06-06

Great job!

Do you think you might be able to figure out an eye scanner for security?

Gilo (author)HardCoreHacker2009-01-03

just dont use superglue to get a print of your iris. :)

ReCreate (author)Gilo2009-01-29

"Ouch my finger is stuck to my eyeball!"

_soapy_ (author)ReCreate2009-03-30

LOL. OP, yes and no. Iris scanning, which takes a look at the outside of your eye and compares it with the database, has been blown right out the water. A high-res photo, an inkjet printer and a few seconds work lets you beat them, even the ones that look for a pulse. Retina scanning, which shines a light into your eye and compares what it sees with the database, is till secure, mostly because the scanners are so invasive that you'll never get a retina scan without the person working it out, unless you pretend to be their optician! Of course, you could set up a fake eyeball somehow, but it's a lot harder, plus there tends to be a guard monitoring the scanner. As ever, as with all biometrics, positive auth is all well and good, but the lack of repudiation ruins it. Someone steals your iris print and abuses it - how do you stop it? You can't just reset the password - you only have two eyes. Or only one eye. Or, indeed, what do you do for the blind born without eyes? UK law to prevent discrimination means you'll need another system.

Y'know, they say "You can do whatever you like, so long as you're prepared for the consequences." So go try and get a cop's fingerprint who has access to the locker, and lemme know how that goes.

Juggalo720 (author)dUc0N2009-03-28

seriously getting a cops fingerprint isn't that hard all you have to do is find the spot that he touches on the top of your car and make a mold of that then all you need to do is recruit yourself into their precinct and your good as gold
