That number is increasing as a growing number of businesses, apps, and organizations want to make sure you're the real you.
They might even text us a code, or ask us to pick out photos, all in an effort to make sure we're human.
And actor John O'Hurley says that's what was driving him crazy.
"That's going to be the title of my memoir when I put this all down to pen."
O'Hurley is best known as the host of the annual National Dog Show, and for playing the eccentric catalog magnate J. Peterman on "Seinfeld."
O'Hurley says he was inspired to work with Q5ID after seeing the damage that could be done with unverified users.
"Well, there would be no retrieving that by saying, 'Well, it wasn't really that person.
And with bots now beating most authentication programs, Q5ID's app will use your phone to scan your face or your palm, keeping the data on your own device.
Simultaneously, it proves to your bank, a social media platform, or any other company that it's really you.
The company also offers an app called "Guardian," with the goal of revamping and revolutionizing how missing people can be found.
Ultimately, most experts are predicting our use of biometrics to increase significantly in the next few years.
O'Hurley credits the boom to the ease of use, saying it's a hit with consumers "because it's the last time you technically would ever need a password, or a username.
