Authenticate (verify) with typing pattern using Postman

If you have previously saved a typing pattern for a user, you can now authenticate by using the “verify” TypingDNA API service. See down below how to authenticate a user with a typing pattern.

Import the TypingDNA Postman collection

Note: In order to authenticate, the user has to have a previously saved typing pattern.

5. Add a recorded typing pattern in the tp parameter. You can use this typing pattern as an example:

0,2.11,0,0,18,1473785675,4,82,13,0,-1,-1,0,-1,-1,12,93,24,0,-1,-1|8330,137|1121,142|902,144|776,128|792,
151|784,111|864,151|872,111|824,127|816,104|888,95|800,151|808,119|897,134|775,101|848,111|1000,
143|688,126

Hint: Typing patterns are outputted by the TypingDNA JavaScript recorder on your front-end application. Use this type-to-output tool to easily get typing patterns.

6. Click the Send button to make the API call. Now you should get a successful API reply.

Reminder: To authenticate/verify a typing pattern, you have to previously save a typing pattern for the same user.

Congratulations. You have successfully managed to authenticate a typing pattern.
