Introducing behavioral biometrics
Static biometrics emerged from the theory that a password or a PIN number can be stolen, while something unique to your body like the face, fingers, eyes and ears can’t. But the fact is that static biometrics have their shortcomings – the system uses proprietary technology with limited use, and is only available on high-end […]

Static biometrics like fingerprint sensors should make life a lot easier; no longer do we have to type in security passwords on our mobile phones, or risk having passwords breached. Still, this technology is only available on high-end smartphones, and is not ubiquitous. But thanks to behavioral biometrics, the future of mobile phone security could […]

Still, static biometrics are only available on high-end smartphones and use proprietary technology that limits their use. But things are about to change with what could very […]
