Voice recognition technology allows mobile users to interact with their smartphones. It can be very useful in situations where one is unable to use hands. However, it needs to catch up with iris and fingerprint recognition technologies.

Think of fingerprint and iris recognition technologies. They provide a means of unique identification. Only specified fingerprints or eyes will unlock your phone. Voice recognition needs to step up to that level of authentication. At the moment, almost anyone can control your smartphone with their voice.

Voice recognition needs to catch up with iris and fingerprint

One common complaint among users of voice recognition systems like Google Now, Siri, Cortana and the like is the inability to train those virtual assistants to recognize only their voice. In other words, voice recognition still has a weakness in the area of security.

Voice Recognition Exclusivity Is Security

I want my smartphone to respond to only my voice. Only mine. Not everyone who is able to speak the right pass phrase. When voice recognition is able to achieve that level of authentication, we will have taken smartphone usability to another level.

Of course, I can imagine that this is being worked on already. Till it is sorted out, we do not have a truly secure hands-free mobile experience yet. If you have your smartphone locked with a PIN, password, pattern, fingerprint or your iris, you will need to use your hands first to unlock it before you can engage it with your voice.

The next question is, Who will be the first to conquer this frontier? Who will make speech and voice recognition truly secure?
