    Thank you! I'm a Crime Scene Technology major in college and am currently working on a Cyanoacrylate Assignment. Our professor said to use a fuming pouch, but didn't provide us with one in our fingerprint kits! We were however, given small metal trays and bottles of cyanoacrylate. I will be doing this process today!

    And can you simply wipe the prints off after?

    Great Video. Super Glue is a great fingerprinting method, and relatively easy. Ventilation is important, and remember to open the box away from yourself.

    You are obviously on the wrong channel buddy. This is for people who like doing things on their own even if they are unncessary and complicated.

    also they kill someone AT LEAST once a month, and EVERY SINGLE TIME WITHOUT FAIL FOR ANY REASON, they get off scott free. they beat this guy to death, while he was begging for his life. confiscated the cell phone videos, AND ERACED THEM. not all police departments care about helping the public. some of them, tho they may have started to help the community, have morphed into the biggest and the worst gang in bakersfield. they kill more people and commit more crimes as a unit than any gang here.

    not sure its a good idea to try this on a phone. im not totally sure but i assume, maybe wrongly, that the humidity and chemicals might mess up some of the delicate stuff inside smart phones, especially iphones because they are basically garbage and break when you look at them wrong.

    yeah, unless you live in my city where the cops are so corrupt its not even funny, they activly destroy the relationship with the community, they dont show up for you calls, and when they do they turn you into the criminal. on top of that crime in our neighborhood is out of control, to the point of me having to pull guns on intruders, multiple times. again, the cops dont show up. so i will do the investigations, i will do it all, and show those idiots up. think detroit!!!!!!

    How do you actually propose to catch the criminal after fingerprinting?


    In case you hadn't surmised my wit, I have my Mr. Serious head on (temporarily) for the purpose of this comment thread.

    Are you serious?

    Are you 5 yrs old?

    You would seriously fingerprint your phone?

    How about just asking your friend?

    If my roommate borrowed my phone without permission I'd kick him in the balls or punch the bitch in the face.

    I might even let them use my phone.

    I don't think you get the point of my wit.

    I certainly wouldn't expose my phone to superglue, vapor or otherwise 😛

    It's called "hacking". Yes, there are easier ways to do it, but we do it because it is fun or interesting, or because we can.

  22. You would call the police because you think your roommate borrowed your phone without permission? you don't get the point of this video

    Did you know, we have police, forensic investigators & labs that are taxpayer funded to do this for you?

    I suppose if you still live in the 19th century where you don't yet have fingerprinting then it might be useful.

    However, I also don't think they had superglue or coffee warmers in the 19th century though.

    Me, I prefer to just pick up the phone and call the police.

    That way I get value for my taxes and don't have to spend any more money on stuff.

    or you can use graphite powder, but it's harder to use.
