Fortunately I don't go sticking my fingers in wet gummy bears, so that
risk is mitigated!

While finger prints can be faked, it often requires access to the
finger to fake. I haven't heard of someone lifting a latent oil print
and creating a fake out of that. I'm sure with enough ingenuity it can
be done. Then again if someone is that intent on accessing your data,
well I'm sure they could figure another way as well...
