Are Finger Prints Secure?

According to welivesecurity.com

…Jan Krissler, claims to have ‘copied’ the thumbprint of Germany’s Defense Minister from standard photos, in machine-readable form.

Does this mean that fingerprints are not a secure biometric method?

We can expect that as more devices rely on fingerprints to secure them, the evil hackers will be working on ways to overcome fingerprint readers. 2 Factor authentication is the best method for keeping your information safe.

You can read my blog on 2 factor authentication here, or watch a video of how to use with gmail here:
