After reading a thread last night about having multiple sets I was thinking of doing it, now with both of your Comments I'll do it.
But seriously, it's a cool little feature. I didn't think I'd like it, I have never added a passcode on any of my past phones. Not even on the first iPhone or galaxy s1

I like it so far, is faster than entering a password, pin or pattern. sometimes it wouldnt recognize it but I dont mind swiping my finger a couple of times.

I would use it if it were more practical, like if I could link all my passwords to the scanner that would be cool, but since it only works on a few applications and is proprietary, I just don't use it enough and like to get into my phone quickly.
