Claim of US Patent No. 10,169,561

1. An earpiece for authenticating users using stored finger print authentication data, the earpiece comprising:an earpiece housing;
at least one speaker;
at least one microphone;
a processor disposed within the earpiece housing and operatively connected to the at least one speaker and the at least one microphone, wherein once authentication occurs all or portions of earpiece operation or programming become accessible to a user;
a plurality of sensors operatively connected to the processor;
a data storage device disposed within the earpiece housing and operatively connected to the processor, wherein a first portion of the stored finger print authentication data is stored on the data storage device;
a radio transceiver disposed within the earpiece housing and operatively connected to the processor, wherein a second portion of the stored fingerprint authentication data is stored at a remote location and accessible over a network through the radio transceiver;
wherein the processor is configured to receive fingerprint data from a first sensor at a fingerprint contact surface on the earpiece housing and analyze the fingerprint data using the first portion of the stored fingerprint authentication data and the second portion of the stored fingerprint authentication data; and
wherein the processor is configured to receive users biometric data from a second sensor and make an authentication decision based on the fingerprint data and the biometric data.
