Fingerprints are unique to each person. Your fingerprints are not going to match the fingerprints of your neighbor.
That is why fingerprints can be such a valuable tool for identification purposes. When a prospective employer requests a background check, you will need to submit to fingerprinting.
The fingerprints will be run through various agencies to check for criminal records and other records tied to your fingerprints. In other words, if you were ever arrested and fingerprinted, it will likely show up in your background check.
Fingerprinting provides a level of security for jobs before they hire workers. It helps to ensure that workers have the kind of background the job requires.
