In-Phone Activity Proves To Be A Better Safety Lock Than An Actual Password
New system can identify you by how you interact within your device's interface.
Researchers at Georgia Tech have developed a security system that keeps your phone safe, even if someone manages to get past your extremely complicated swipe pattern or password. The new features knows how you would normally interact with your phone, and if it detects any irregular patterns, will lock down your phone to keep it safe from unwelcome guests.
LatentGesture monitors user activity in the form of swipes, taps and check boxes, which are all used to create a custom profile, of which you can have up to five. The system then continuously monitors your device for any strange behaviours, which acts as the signal for a complete lockdown.
