Tapplock sells a fingerprint-enabled padlock for $100. Zack was able to defeat it quickly and quietly by twisting off the back plate and removing a couple of screws. Ouch.
At first glance this Tapplock fingerprint scanning padlock may seem like the way of the future… But is it? Is it secure? Is it safe? There is only one way to know for sure and thats with a review from the inside.
Fingerprint scanners are becoming the norm on smart phones and other devices, its no surprise now to see them on a padlock. With a one year battery life, and enough storage for 500 fingerprints, this lock seems super cool.
Made from solid metal, the Tapplock is anti pry and anti shim, making it pretty secure… but… but… what if there is an Achilles heel hidden 'round back. Is it possible to physically hack this $100 dollar smart lock? It is. Its great for the gym or something non valuable. But dont lock anything super secure with it.
