Consider another big inconvenience that citizens would have to face when their default/fallback text-password/PIN has been broken; Very sadly, not only consumers but quite a few security professionals are unconscious of the fact that biometrics used in cyberspace does not make an additional layer, but provides an additional entrance like a backdoor as you find in the picture below.
