1. A mobile device comprising:
a biometric sensor;
a contextual sensor; and
a processor configured to:
determine an authentication score based upon a biometric input received from the biometric sensor;
modulate the authentication score utilizing a modulation factor determined by a contextual sensor input received from the contextual sensor related to an event; and
determine if the modulated authentication score falls below a predetermined threshold, and if so, destroying a biometric template.
