Will there be a bypass for the iPhone 5S fingerprint scanner?

Will there be a bypass for the iPhone 5S fingerprint scanner?

I'm thinking it'd make sense in case something goes wrong with the scanner; you'd be completely locked out of your phone. But then surely that renders the whole thing pointless?!

There is a bypass. But it is about convenience.
If you need to enter your password frequently, you probably pick a simple password. The scanner means you can have a more secure password that you only need now and again.

The other day a new clerk served me in the credit union. Had never seen me. All I had to do to get a draft for €500 was to first lodge €30 into my account. That seemed to prove that it's my account and I wasn't asked for ID! People suck. Security is a farce. I still caused a stink! :p

You can bypass EVERY PASSWORD on every device or service account - "forgot password" button!
Android's lockscreen pattern? If you can access your friend's gmail? No prob!
