The built-in-sensors of the phone are able to record the unique pattern of pressure, duration and fingertip size and position that each user exhibits while they are interacting with their phone or tablet, New Scientist reported.
Machine learning algorithms turn this into the user's signature and lock out anyone whose patterns of usage don't match the user's.
For increasing the system's accuracy, the smartphone's accelerometer and gyroscope measure how much the screen moves when the user jabs at it. (ANI)
