== Bio-Metric Multiple Users ==
Hello,

I have used webauthn with Bio-metric and I found that it is not recognizing Finger print. If someone has device and my password and he can just use his finger print and he can login. finger print scanning is not working with webauthn. I am using this with PHP based system and I have checked the same with Google's webauthn demo. I found that Bio-metric is kind of no use if finger print scanned is not stored. I have tested this with many browser and platforms like 

https://webauthn.io/dashboard
https://webauthn.me/

I can register with my finger print and someone else can use his finger print and able to login. Am I missing something here? 

Please guide me how to resolve this issue.
