After stealing the phone, a person has to format the smartphone in order to be able to access it. You data, files, documents etc. cannot be accessed unless and until you open the phone yourself.
There are many brands like invens mobileMoto, Vivo, Oppo etc. which provides fingerprint sensors in their mobile devices, ensuring the safety and security of your data.

Fingerprint sensor feature is better than other features such as face detection, eye identifier etc. These features are not found to be authentic as many times they have their own drawbacks and flaws, a fair bit of complaints are registered regarding these features that sometimes these features are not able to identify the faces and the phone remains locked.
