The article implies that some people think a fingerprint is a password, but doesn't give any evidence of it. The idea never occurred to me. Are there security schemes or proposals that assume other people don't know my fingerprints?
I know there are schemes where I'm supposed to put my finger in a scanner and someone could circumvent it just by bypassing the scanner and supplying my fingerprint description. But that's not the same thing. The assumption there is that the data collection is trustworthy, not that nobody but me could know my fingerprint.
