About us

At TypingDNA, we authenticate people by how they type. Our mission is to improve security without compromising user convenience with our suite of Continuous Authentication and 2FA products.

Our patented typing biometric technology shines at being the most accessible authentication technology on the market and works with any keyboard, on any device, runs passively behind the scenes, and begins identifying intruders with only one previous typing sample.


TypingDNA is a cybersecurity SaaS, with offices in πŸ“ New York, USA and πŸ“ Romania, EU. We use typing biometrics authentication as a service with 3 core security products: ActiveLock continuous authentication, Verify 2FA and Authentication API. And currently, we're exploring future use cases of this technology with TypingDNA Focus.
