Behavioral biometrics

Behavioral biometrics recognize people by the way they behave.


What is behavioral biometrics?

Most popular biometrics recognizes people by their face, voice or fingerprint, but alternative and less invasive biometrics have emerged recently.

Behavioral biometrics goes a step further by identifying a person based on unique behavior they have when they interact with a device. It allows a true frictionless authentication being less invasive and using existing hardware capabilities avoiding additional sensor costs. Platforms use today one or multiple types of behavioral patterns.


Types of behavioral patterns

  • the way people walk, known as gait recognition
  • the way people hold and interact with a phone/tablet
  • the way people use their mouse, known as mouse biometrics
  • the way people type on their keyboards, known as typing biometrics

Benefits of using behavioral biometrics?

  • Passive
  • Registration and authentication is invisible avoiding unpleasant user experience.

  • Availability & low cost
  • Widely available by using existing hardware thus eliminating the need for costly additional hardware equipment.
