This wiki has been updated 6 times since it was first published in October of 2018. You've got stuff, and you want to protect it, but between building entry codes, ATM PINs, and passwords for a dozen websites, your brain doesn't need one more thing to remember. The ability to use a finger to quickly access that backpack, gym locker, or bicycle will mean no one can get in but you, and you won't have to go rummaging through random Post-its to find a combination you set a year ago. When users buy our independently chosen editorial recommendations, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki. Skip to the best biometric padlock on Amazon.

Editor's Notes

October 26, 2018:

This category is dominated by portable locks designed for use with backpacks and gym lockers, with most options having the basic feature of a few fingerprints and long standby times. The most notable unique features are remote access, alarm sounds, and the ability to sync with a phone app. Very few heavy-duty options available, which is why they fetch a premium price, but for those who want to secure a laptop at a coffee shop, there are a wealth of choices.
