We have developed a mood prediction app based on typing biometrics
that allows users to see their predicted mood and typing activity.
Focus is a mood prediction, mood tracker, typing analyzer,
productivity and health & fitness application which may be
downloaded from the TypingDNA website, at
to the User’s device (Mac, PC or mobile) and used to provide Users
with valuable information about when and how they use their device
when they type.
We have designed Focus primarily to:
Allow Users to observe our prediction about their mood based on
offer insights into their typing activity on their device
(including mood fluctuations), and offer suggestions that can
lead to productivity increase and efficient planning;
offer Users fun insights related to their typing activity on
their devices (such as how often they type, preferred times of
day, quality or quantity of typing, mood and mood fluctuations,
Focus relies on (built-in) typing biometrics proprietary technology
and analyzes how Users type so that they can discover when they are
most focused, tired, or stressed, as well as other moods, mental
states or emotions. It gives Users insights based on their typing
behaviour, which will include weekly trends, daily activity
breakdown, engage window, focus levels, and immediate analysis of
their mood, among other things. This way, Users can use Focus to
know when they are most focused, better plan their daily activities,
and improve their productivity.
Focus is provided free of charge for non-commercial use only, in
accordance with Polyform Strict License 1.0.0, linked here:
https://polyformproject.org/licenses/strict/1.0.0/. In order to be able to download and use Focus, the User needs a
valid/active Google email account. For the time being, sign-up to
Focus is possible only with a Google email account.
Some functions of Focus, such as specific/premium mood
predictions, may be unlocked through one of the following
“Invite your friends to use the Focus” – Users can unlock
additional features and functionalities of Focus by inviting
their friends to download and use Focus. If Users choose this
option, they have to copy the URL link uniquely associated with
their Google account and send it to their friends. We will
unlock the requested feature of Focus once the assigned URL has
been used by them to successfully download and log in into the
app. As mentioned above, Users’ friends will also need a
valid/active Google email account to download and sign-in to
Participate in our Public Research – alternatively, Users can
unlock the additional functionalities of Focus by helping us
improve the app and the technology behind it. To do so, Users
may agree to contribute to Our Public Research, which is
https://public-research.typingdna.com/. To unlock the available features, Users will be required to
complete a certain target/objective (i.e. quantity of typing on
Our Public Research website). Such target will be communicated
to Users once they choose this option.
We are currently running a research and development programme
(the Public Research programme), seeking to identify certain
behavioural metrics in the way people type, depending on a
variety of stimuli they are subjected to, or circumstances they
may find themselves in. The purpose of the Research Study is to
identify particular typing patterns defined as behavioural
patterns and data that can be related to typing, touch and
pointer input (including, but not limited to, speed of typing,
pressure applied, intervals between keystrokes, telemetry
information, typing rhythms, touch and swipe pattern etc.)
depending on various emotions participants feel at a given
moment, the research is also used to develop and further improve
our typing biometrics technologies for any potential use,
including but not limited to user authentication.
Please note that Public Research is subject to a different
If Users decide to use this option, they should use the same
Google email account as they use for signing-up to Focus for
signing up to the Public Research, as this is the only way We
will be able to verify that Users have met their typing target
and unlock the additional features of Focus.
Other methods, such as paying for premium features, or to use
for commercial purposes.
Even though the Focus relies on typing biometrics proprietary
technology to analyze Users typing activity on their device, We do
not track Users activity on their devices remotely, and Focus
works (once downloaded on their device) without any form of
interaction between Users and Us, with the exception of eventual
updates and initializations of Focus when Focus starts, and at
sign up/sign in where We communicate with our servers in order to
be able to activate Users account and unlock premium features in
The technology already embedded in Focus allows it to analyze
Users typing biometrics data directly on their device, without any
transfer of their typing biometrics data to Us. We do not process
or track or otherwise have access to Users activity on their
device. However, with Users’ prior consent, We will collect
anonymous statistical data from Focus that can help Us improve
Focus and give Users better predictions.
For avoidance of doubt, We DO NOT keylog/log Users typed text in the
cloud through the Focus. We only record their typing biometrics on
the device only to run our prediction algorithms on the device as
well. For better clarity, as previously mentioned, We do have a
different research app (called Public Research app), that runs in
browser only, where We allow anyone who opts in for it to help Us
build better algorithms by typing in a chat window/answering some
Any data resulted from the User’s typing activity is stored locally
and encrypted. For this reason, the Users are responsible to protect
