If the thumbppring is the key, then you're sunk. After all, the person's
thumbprint is going to be on the pad unelss they carefully wipe it off after
every time they use it. Even if they do wipe it off or the surface of the
device is carefully designed to make lifting a print difficult, all you have
to do is dust their phone, desk, or glass.
